it was amazing

Though Howard's arguments rely mainly on anecdotal evidence, the anecdotes are egregious and really do get you thinking. Our system of government is weighed down by too much process, and stifles action by diminishing personal responsibility. More statistical analysis would make his case stronger. Some counter-points would be nice too: when does process really work well? For example, procedures for ensuring sanitary conditions in hospitals.
