If you have been on Google today you will have noticed their doodle in honor of the 100th anniversary of Lucille Ball’s birth.
I am delighted that Google saw fit to pay tribute to a trailblazing comedienne and a television pioneer. But at the same it makes their decision not to honor the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s birth all the more glaring. After all, Ball and Reagan were not only contemporaries but friends.
When Reagan was Governor of California he recorded a tribute to Lucille Ball which was played to her during an appearance on the Merv Griffin Show. Here’s The Gipper sharing his thoughts about Lucille Ball with Mike Wallace after she passed away in 1989.
To paraphrase Ricky Ricardo, “Google has got some “splaining” to do.”

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
