"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 - Kelly McGillis

Somewhat alarmingly, Kelly McGillis (Tom Cruise's love interest in Top Gun) turns 55 today.   But forget Top Gun, McGillis' best role was in a very fine movie directed by Peter Weir and co-starring Harrison Ford called Witness:

FYI, McGillis late in life, and after two failed marriages with two children, came out as a lesbian.  Meh.   Who cares?
