"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

Girl Friday - Jessica Brown-Findlay

Jessica Brown-Findlay is the young girl who plays the youngest daughter on the BBC series Downton Abbey, who is a bit of a suffragette in 1913 England.   We've now finished watching it on PBS, and it was wonderful.   I literally can't wait for the next season, but I suppose I must, since it won't be on here in America until probably winter of 2012.
