"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 Monday - SI Swimsuit Girl

The problem with the modern Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is that I've passed the age where it doesn't somewhat gross me out to catch myself ogling girls who are 18, 19 or 20 years old.  Having daughters only exacerbates the problem.  And the current SI swimsuit layouts are bordering on pornography given the scantiness of the swimsuits and the sultriness of the poses.  So for the girl of the day one must revert to an earlier era.  Here is the first SI swimsuit girl, Babette Beatty, from 1964.   She was twenty-three then, she's seventy now; I was five, I'm 51.  All is right with the world.
