Desperately procrastinating returning to studying for either of my midterms this week after an extended dinner break, I shall stall for time further, with one of those lovely plug-in-template blog entries:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.
"Later Coxe saw to it that his speech (An Enquiry into the principles, on which a commercial system for the United States of America should be founded...
[and] some political observations connected with the subject)
was published and 'inscribed to the members of the convention.'"
From Major Problems in the History of American Technology,
by Merritt Roe Smith and Gregory Clancey. (One of the textbooks I should be studying from right about now, actually. Alas.)
