Here are the rules. The rules are simple. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages), open the book to page 123, find the fifth sentence, post the next three sentences and tag five other bloggers. I guess comics and pop-up books are allowed, although I've never seen a 100+ page comic book, unless you count (insert joke here).
Here's mine.. from the book "The Weather Conspiracy...The Coming of the New Ice Age" published in 1977:
What should each one of us do to make our own contributions in the fight against famine? Major international cooperation has always been difficult to bring off, but there are reasons to hope that governments will sublimate their short-term interests to the pressing need for solutions to avoid worldwide disaster. Ample precedent exists for unlikely alliances among sovereign states when confronted by major outside menace--Britain and the United States and Russia, for example, during World War II.Oh how I wish I could have posted the next sentence. Keep in mind, they were talking about global cooling.
I'll go ahead and tag Mick, LA, and Mustang should they desire to play along.
