"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

Birthday Today - Jerome Robbins

Today would be Jerome Robbins' 95th birthday.   The greatest choreographer on Broadway ever?   Well, maybe not... I'd probably still take Bob Fosse.   But is Robbins' prologue to West Side Story the greatest dance ever on Broadway or on film?   I'd have to say yes.
