Hoover Loved Lucy

Potomac News Online reported in an article entitled, "Fifty things we know now (that we didn't know this time last year)" that former FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover wrote a gushy fan letter to Lucille Ball in 1955.

"In all the years I have traveled on trains," he noted, "I have often wondered why someone did not pull the emergency brake, but I have never been aboard a train where it was done. The humor in your program last Monday, I think, exceeded any of your previous programs and they have been really good in themselves."
