"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 - Happy Birthday, Marilyn!

I missed this one... it was Marilyn Monroe's birthday over the weekend.   She would have been 87.  Instead, she'll always look like this, taken by George Barris in 1962 when she was 36 and less than a month before she died.

Such a fragile thing.   RIP.
