"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 - Olivia Hussey

When I was nine (in 1968) one of the big movies out was Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet.   I have vague memories of the actress who played Juliet, a seventeen-year old named Olivia Hussey, being on the cover of some teen magazines my sisters had.   I may be making that up... memory is tricky that way.

Anyway, Ms. Hussey turns 62 today.   Tempus fugit, once again.
