Teaser Tuesday (August 17)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I’ve just finished two of the half dozen novels I’ve been working my way through, so I wasn’t really sure which book to use for this week’s Teaser Tuesday – especially as I have already featured most of them before! So I decided to go with the next book on my list; miracle of miracles, a non-fiction tome.

People with disabilities have organizations defending their interests, and they have been able to enact laws in their own interest; and yet, evidence of continuing discrimination against them is so strong that the case for some form of heightened scrutiny is strong. Gays and lesbians are in a similar situation: although they have been able to organize and engage in political action, there is still overwhelming prejudice and stigma associated with the classification, so the fact that such political action exists should not debar them from a form of heightened scrutiny.

— p.118, From Disgust to Humanity: Sexual Orientation and Constitutional Law by Martha C. Nussbaum

    “I panned after Tiny along the boulevard toward rue Bleu. I knew he’d go up the little alley just before it, because Bleu was bad with the gangs. As soon as he turned in, where his pink-and-gold silks wouldn’t be seen from back down the street, I squeezed.”
