Here's the quote:
(First 5 sentences...)
Spectators at the far side of the estacada squatted or dropped to their knees and some of them lay face down in the dirt with their hands over their heads. In the silence the only sound was the low whining of one of the dogs. Then someone spoke from the bleachers. Bastante, he said. No le molesta.
(Next 3 sentences...)
It was the alguacil. All turned to him. He was standing in the upper tiers of the rough board scaffolding with men at either side of him in their seven x beaver hats, some smoking puros as was the alguacil.
From The Crossing by Cormac McCarthy. (I did not make mistakes above. McCarthy doesn't use much punctuation or italics or anything.)
I'm supposed to tag 5 people, but I'd rather just say, do it if you want! You're all potentially tagged.
