"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

Today in History - Jimi, Really?

A weird fact about July 22nd.   On this day in 1967, Jimi Hendrix quit as the opening act for the Monkees.

I don't know what's weirder, that Jimi Hendrix was ever the opening act for the Monkees; that the Monkees, an imaginary rock band created for a TV show, were touring; or that they're still touring now, 44 years later.
