The more I think about it, Jimmy was the last of our adult supervision.

He told us things that we didn't want to hear.  He talked with people and even managed to stop folks from killing each other for a bit.  He didn't over-react when some of our folks got caught in the middle of another country's civil war.

He recognized that we were living beyond our means, he gave us a stern talking to which we ignored.  When he got ousted by a fool who told us we could have anything that we wanted, he didn't sit around and mope, he went and began doing serious charity work, helping poor people live in their own houses with work being done by their own hands.   He continued working for solutions that didn't involve bombing people.  He still showed us how a good man lived.

I would strongly recommend that you watch this entire video.  I would defy you to find any fault with what he says.

In her column this morning, Maureen Dowd called Carter "an eat-your-peas president for an ice-cream-sundae nation." Pithy!
