Andrew: Quietly, in my sleep, like my grandfather did.

Which U.S. president raised money to redecorate the White House by auctioning off presidential artifacts—including a pair of Abraham Lincoln’s trousers?

Chester A. Arthur, in 1882. Other items auctioned off included 24 wagonloads of furniture and 30 barrels of china.

The familiar “valentine” logo at the beginning and ending of I Love Lucy wasn’t added until the show went into syndicated reruns. When the show first aired in the 1950s, it was sponsored by Philip Morris, and began with Lucy and Ricky dancing around a huge pack of cigarettes. The show’s ending had Lucy lighting Ricky’s cigarette, chirping, “You see how easy it is to keep a man happy? Why not give your husband a carton of Philip Morris cigarettes?”

(My. how times have changed!)
Dinah Shore won Emmys five years in a row (1955–59) in four different categories.
