The Divine Lamp tagged me a few days ago for a book meme. Here are 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.
  5. Tag five people.
Let's's an old paperback copy of Summa Theologica. On page 123, the fifth sentence is the Reply to Objection #1. The next three sentences are:
But as regards the object intended to be signified by the name, this name God is more proper, as it is imposed to signify the divine nature; and still more proper is the name Tetragrammaton, imposed to signify the substance itself of God, incommunicable and, if one may so speak, singular.

Reply to Objection 2. This name Good is the princpal name of God in so far as He is a casue, but not absolutely; for absolutely speaking, being is understood by us before cause.
I tag the following people: Peter of Utter Muttering, Carmel of Winterr's Words, Denise of Catholic Mom, Q of Quantitative Metathesis (if she can pull herself away from the paper she's writing...maybe she'll quote from her paper), and Tom in Vegas.

I was going to tag Edmund, but he's probably reading some oncology book.

No, actually, I was reading a general internal medicine review book ;-) On p. 123, 5th sentence, onward:

"A 72-year-old retired lawyer is evaluated because of swelling of his right knee. He has mild osteoarthritis and stays active swimming and playing tennis and golf. On physical examination, he has an effusion in the right knee. At a point in the mid-thigh (measured from the superior border of the patella), the right thigh is 4 cm smaller in diameter than the left. There is crepitus with right knee flexion. The knee is not warm."

I'll ponder on tagging folks...

What's a crepitus? It doesn't sound nice at all.

My response, my good lady, is here. And Edmund - what is the prognosis? That sounds vaguely like something that happened to me when I was in high school the answer to which I was given only "inflamation".
