I'm not sure what exactly reminded me of this song I loved circa 2004. But I was thinking about the line that talks about brandishing. We don't ever talk about brandishing anything but weapons, but I think the word should somehow be applied to those who flaunt their authority, those who brandish, if you will, their power and thus use it as a weapon. See, that could totally work. And no, this post is not directed to a certain specific authority figure I spent 40 minutes talking to Kate about yesterday. No way, Jose.
