Book Meme (what a boring title)

I have pilfered this from the wonderful Anndi

Rules: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 46. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The closest book, not the coolest, or the one you think will sound the best. THE CLOSEST!!!

From the book un Spun – finding facts in a world of [disinformation] by Brooks Jackson and Kathleen Hall Jamison

But that’s when a group backed by some billionaire families, including the Gallo Wine clan and the Blethen Family, owners of The Seattle Times, began lobbying to repeal it.
