^^^Yes, I am well aware about Desi Arnaz. Desi had a privileged childhood and was going to
attend the University of Notre Dame (law). However, his family were victims of the Batista uprising
and Desi (with his mother) fled to Miami (his father was imprisoned).
But this thread is about Lucy.
In the 1950's she was the first female vice president and after their divorce the first president
of a production company "Desilu." She also had to fight the network and the sponsor to have
Desi play her husband on the show.

As a huge Lucy fan, I think the new statue is wonderful and quite appropriate. I've watched several old interviews with her discussing I Love Lucy. She never gave herself much credit at all for the show being a huge success. Instead she gave nearly all the credit to Desi, the shows writers and to her co-stars. The only credit she would give herself was to say she was brave for doing some of those skits. She always minimized greatly her talent and her role in that show.
She's one person I've always admired greatly.

Lucy made the world laugh, and I remember her fondly.

Yes, this is much much better! Not perfect... but pretty darn good especially in comparison to the first one. Dang, I would NEVER have recognized that face at Lucy!!
