"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

We saw the movie The Fighter yesterday.   Probably the best movie about boxing I've seen, and the performance of Christian Bale (below) as the crack-addicted brother-trainer of the fighter Mickey Ward is spectacular.  If he doesn't win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, it's a crime.
