Book Game

I got this one off Mrs. Who's site & it looked fun, so I gave it a go. The rules are simple:

1) Grab the nearest book

2) Open said book to page 123 - if you're a liberal, comic books don't often go that high.

3) Find the 5th sentence

4) Post sentences 5, 6 & 7 on your site, along with these directions (because Mrs. Who says so!)

5) Be realistic. Just because you have that Sarte book (that you haven't touched since college) doesn't mean you should use it to convince people how "deep" you are. Grab the closest book!


Here's my selection:
"The [Secular-Progressive] spearhead knew exactly what it wanted to achieve when it marched into Carmen Dixon's life: that is, a court ruling demonstrating that a parent has no right to supervise a child surreptitiously. For the secular-progressive movement to achieve its goals in America, it must undermine traditional parental authority and convince children there's a brave new world out there that does not include being raised in the traditional way. The [Secular-Progressive] goal is to diminish parental authority that, in the past, had been unquestioned".

"Culture Warrior", by Bill O'Reilly, in reference to Christensen v. State of Washington where a mother eavesdropped on her teenage daughter. What can I say? I'm a bit of a political nerd.

Holy Crap! I wish I had the alertness to read something of this level. I couldn't do it justice. Most of the time I fall asleep reading.

"O let'em all come! Hurry up! Come along, you two, and sit down! Because Mrs. says so

Mrs. Who,
It's a good book, to be honest, but you really have to be into O'Reilly's straight-talk style to appreciate it.

Anonymous,
I've discovered that doing what a woman tells you to often can make life easier.

There's enough obstacles out there without ticking off a loady adding to it.

Also, keep in mind that Mrs. Who is undoubtedly one of the coolest bloggers I know, so bending to her will isn't much of a problem.
