85. Patricoff wants Dean to show LEADERSHIP - so long as it agrees with the Patricof Doctrine.
If you want the man to lead, step back out of his face and let him do his job.

But we all know that is not what is wanted here. What is wanted here is not leadership. It's capitulation.

Me thinks there are too many roosters in the barnyard. (I said roosters because I was being polite)
