Recycled book meme

Still adjusting to the night shift schedule, I was sleeping when I heard a loud thump on the front porch. I opened the door of the Sanitarium to find something that looked as though it had been drug out of a garbage dump. I then looked up and caught a glimpse of the Complaint Department Manager's ass skedaddling back to Missouri as fast as he could run.

We've seen this one before. Wot the hell - it's cheap, easy, and I wasn't planning on posting anything today anyway...

The rules of this meme, for those who haven't seen it yet:

1. Find the nearest book.
2. Name the book.
3. Name the author.
4. Turn to page 123.
5. Go to the fifth sentence on the page.
6. Copy the next three sentences and post to your blog.
7. Tag three more lucky souls.

What I have nearby is titled Living With The Dead. It's not about necrophilia (although that might have given us something more interesting to quote). The book is former Grateful Dead manager Rock Scully's memoir of his years of attempting to bring some order to the business affairs of that unruly lot. Here's what we find in the designated place on page 123:

Also, Phil has been taking more lead vocals, which doesn't exactly hold the bottom. Mickey and his energy galvanize the rhythm section and get the bass and the drums together.

Mickey Hart is the first musician that the Grateful Dead ever even considered for the band who doesn't come from their own backyard.

Since it's the second time around, I'm not tagging anybody with this. Anybody who's looking for something to fill some blog space is welcome to scrape some of the rust off this meme and take it home with them.
