"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 of the Day - Maria Bello

Maria Bello has made a career playing tough gals in gritty noir dramas, including Payback, A History of Violence (an underrated crime thriller directed by David Cronenberg for which she got nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress) and the recent TV show, Prime Suspect (where she Americanizes the character played in England by Helen Mirren).   She turns 45 today.
