|Quote of the Day|
`After that he always chose out a "dog command" and sent them ahead. It had the task of informing the inhabitants in the village where we were going to stay overnight that no dog must be allowed to bark in the night otherwise it would be liquidated. I was also on one of those commands and when we came to a village in the region of Milevsko I got mixed up and told the mayor that every dog-owner whose dog barked in the night would be liquidated for strategic reasons. The mayor got frightened, immediately harnessed his horses and rode to headquarters to beg mercy for the whole village. They didn't let him in, the sentries nearly shot him and so he returned home, but before we got to the village everybody on his advice had tied rags round the dogs muzzles with the result that three of them went mad.' -- The good soldier Svejk, Jaroslav Hasek
