"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 - Jean Seberg

It would be her 75th birthday today.   A very sad story that I won't retell here.   But a great beauty.   Oddly, I had always thought she was French, because she was most famous for starring in Truffaut's early film, Breathless, with Jean-Paul Belmondo.   But she was actually born in Iowa.   Go figure.
