That's Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Here's Nouri" and a treat especially for people my age, I bet. When I was a kid, Lucy was doing her CBS sitcoms where she wasn't married. The I Love Lucy episodes? CBS was re-running them during the daytime. I Love Lucy may have been one of the first really successful out-of-production shows. CBS nursed it and then when it went on syndication alone, it helped make Lucy the woman we all know and love.
Meanwhile Bill Daley's out as White House Chief of Staff -- as this snarky piece of purple prose trying to pass for reporting (his "sell-by date"? Really?, his "juice box" was empty?) explains.
It's a shame POLITICO didn't have any real reporters for the story.
