Writer Madelyn Pugh Davis, Writer of "I Love Lucy" Passes away at 90

Those of you who love Lucy may not know that the brain behind the script was Madelyn Pugh Davis, who passed away this week at 90. See this video and decide if you love Lucy like millions of my time and age used to. (That was a different age, of course, when reality television meant a few documentaries broadcast once in a blue moon.) I used to look forward to "I Love Lucy" shows when I was a kid because that was the only laugh riot we had in addition to Charlie Chaplin movies and Yeh Jo Jai Zindagi (remember that serial starring Shafi Inamdar, Rakesh Bedi and Swaroop Sampat?).
