"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Smile of the Day

Michael Vick, after bringing the Eagles back from a 31-10 fourth quarter deficit to the Giants at the New Meadowlands to a 38-31 last second win, is having an amazing year.   Only Tom Brady's sustained excellence for the Patriots will keep Vick from winning the MVP for the NFL, and he may win it anyway.   I didn't like what Vick did -- dog-fighting is a barbaric thing -- but he paid a heavy price with two years in jail and giving up a huge contract (and his reputation), and he now appears to have reformed his life sincerely.
