I am PROUD to say I grew up watching and LOVING Lucille Ball on her numerous TV shows and Films!
I am also PROUD to consider myself one of her fans. Believe me, when I say (to all you youngsters) The world lost a very precious resource in Lucille Ball. 

Those of us who are "old enough to know better" KNOW that very few of the "stars on the Hollywood walk of fame" THESE DAYS, aren't really STARS. Some may have some talent, and in my opinion some don't belong there at all. To me a "Star" can be measured by legends, and I do not use the word loosely.

TRUE LEGENDS in the entertainment industry. Lucille Ball among many; Bob Hope, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Luarence Olivia, Vivien Leigh, Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, John Wayne, Marlon Brando, Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Harris, Clark Gable...and soooo many more.
When you see these TRUE STARS in action, and then see someone like Brittany Spears getting a "star" on Hollywood Blvd. Well, let's just say that the standard has dropped.  Do NOT misunderstand me; Brittany has talent, but she is NO STAR!

Today Lucille Ball would have turned 100. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCY, I LOVE YOU!

Below is a Picture of Lucy at the 61rst Academy Awards, her last public appearance, she died one month later.

Actually, I agree! The word "star" is used too freely, and it's so easy to become famous these days; mostly for doing nothing worth being famous for.
