Happy 97 Birthday Jimmy Carter. As a newsman, I recall covering one of his birthdays while he was POTUS in Disney World, Florida.
He explained why he came to Cinderella’s Castle, saying it was an inspiration for his economic advisors. President Jimmy Carter was born on Oct. 1, 1924, in Plains, Ga., and exemplifies a life of service to America. He served in the U.S. Navy, as a Democratic Georgia State Senator and Governor of Georgia, before being elected in 1976 as the U.S. President.
