    If this sounds suspiciously like a rant, well, that’s because it is. Recently, Lucas and I were invited to enjoy a concert. Upon arrival, I was introduced to a handful of new people and one who I had already met. The one I had already met quickly asked, “A little dressed-up for a rock concert…… More
