Yes, Jimmy is a bad-ass. And if he doesn't put on some safety goggles, he can put an eye out with that nail gun.

It never ceases to make me cringe to see old documentaries from the 50s and 60s showing machine tool operators not wearing eye protection!

I don't think we had eye protection in wood or metal shop, in the '60s. I was college prep, but still managed to take 4 years of wood shop and 3-1/2 years of metal shop (includes summer school). There was a face shield for wood turners, though. Dangerous places. One of the guys lit the gas forge with the cover on, instead of swinging it aside. He got what's called an "instant haircut" and it took many weeks for his eyes to recover from the heat. His eyelashes had been fused together when he blinked, too. He's lucky he wasn't blinded. I wore and still wear Dr Pepper lens specs, so didn't get any eye damage. Very handy when I'm doing wood and metal working in my "shop". My foot is almost healed enough for me to start back in on my clam shell project I started so many months ago. Haven't touched that in about 5 months.

Jimmy is very nearly my favorite Christian.   He was, despite the lasting criticism, a good president. The problem was that he was/is an incompetent politician. 

The dude is doing what he believes Jesus would have him do.  Respect him for his dedication to his principles, regardless of whether we agree with his primary motivations.

some people diminish with time and perspective. others grow in stature instead.

carter is one of the latter. his accomplishments as president were too few. but his moral voice since that time commands increasing respect.
