"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 - Ellen Page

Juno was one of the best movies of the last ten years, and Ellen Page was its breakout star.   A pretty (but not beautiful or sexy), waifish girl with a tart tongue and a patent intelligence, Page went on to appear in Inception, among other movies and some very cute commercials for Cisco.   She turns 26 today, and I have to wonder what her career will look like in ten years, when she can't play either high school girls or college girls or young twenty-something girls.
