"Morality" is doing what's right regardless of what you're told!
"Obedience" is doing what is told, regardless of what is right!

07 is done....(but it's :39 OVER 72 minutes!!!!)

Please say that's all right!!!
I'd hate to ruin the chapter number progression!!!

I guess if it's NOT all right, I can go through and shorten the pauses and speed up some sections to "make it fit"

You're fine! :D It turns out we don't stick to it as a hard rule as much anymore since people don't really make CDs. We do get feedback that sections over an hour are a little difficult on the listeners.

Totally agree about the length!! I don’t know why this writer wrote such long chapters! I find his writing very uneven!
