Question Authority

It’s getting a bit harder this post everyday thing, but we passed the halfway point so I’m confident I can do it, although my posts are getting later and later. By the end, I’ll be posting at 3 a.m.  So without further ado, today’s post:

Question Authority, especially if it doesn’t agree with your mindset.
