An Open Letter to Morning People

You wake up early and get a lot done in the mornings. It's your lunch hour and you're excited to have some free time for yourself. You went to bed at 10:30 last night and woke up feeling fresh and rejuvenated. Good. Great. Grand. Lemme tell you something: I was awake until at least 5:00…

The Marlon Byrd, The Witch, and The Wardrobe?
