"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 - Elizabeth Moss

Mad Men is off to a slow start this year, and I'm not sure that it's going to pull out of it.   There is some potential for jumping the shark, in other words.   (As I've written before, at some point a 40 something year old shallow amoral cheat like Don Draper becomes uninteresting... there's no arc to his character, he's just a jerk.)  

On the other hand, it's always interesting to me how relatively dowdy characters on TV are actually smashing looking in real life.   It may be that both the makeup to make them look dowdy and the makeup to make them look awesome obscure the reality.  

Anyway, Elizabeth Moss has been looking terrific lately.   I wonder when the writers will give her some more interesting love interest as a storyline.
