Book Meme!

Tagged by Ellyn...Who doesn't enjoy a good book meme?
Book Meme 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.
5. Tag five people
The nearest book is actually Pfeiffer's The Sistine Chapel, but page 123 is all photograph.

Book found by running hand blindly among the stacks: Angels' Town: Chero Ways, Gang Life, and Rhetorics of the Everyday by Ralph Cintron:
From this perspective, Valerio's walls displayed not only an array of conventional hyperbolic desires but also an array of local iconographies that had become internationalized. Local iconographies, of course, have been circulating through global arenas for hundreds of years. But the proliferation of such iconographies has become so extensive during the twentieth century that the sites for producing them are not necessarily located within the cultures and geographies from which the iconographies emerged.
Book sighted when I opened my eyes: Graglia's Domestic Tranquility:
No more frivolous are a mother's efforts to create masterpieces of daily living for her family, although the market sets no price on them.

Feminist ideology proliferated through literature like The Future of the Family, edited by Louise Kapp Howe, a compilation of writings attacking the sex-role models of "male-breadwinner" and "female-homemaker." The husband's role as economic provider must be abolished, claims one sociologist in this collection, while another contributor, Olof Palme - the Swedish Prime Minister who wanted all women at work and all children in day care - proudly acknowledges his society's "ridicule" of traditional marriage.
I hereby tag Bone, Jeff, Jonah Goldberg, President Bush, Roz and Don.
