My Favorite Meme

It's the ultimate bookworm's meme, and I do it every time I see it...

The Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.

As any longtime reader here knows, I am constantly - and very literally - surrounded by books when sitting at my desk.  Presently, I have a stack near me that I'm working my way through; each concerns our founding fathers, their religious views, and whether they founded this country on fundamental, orthodox Christian values.  It's all research for a group blog that I am honored to have been asked to contribute to called American Creation; head on over and give it a read.

The book I grabbed was on top, and is The Godless Constitution, A Moral Defense of the Secular State by Issac Kramnick and R. Laurence Moore:

The poor and the handicapped languished without adequate care.  Men drank too much, way too much, and returned to their homes to beat their wives and their children.  Prostitutes plied their trade in American cities.

    I think everything posted made a bunch of sense.

    But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post
    title? I ain't saying your content is not good, however suppose you added a post title that grabbed a
    person's attention? I mean Digitopus » Blog Archive
    » My Favorite Meme is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article titles to get
    people interested. You might add a related
    video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything've written. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a
    little livelier.
