Former President Carter taking online questions

ATLANTA (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter recently celebrated his 88th birthday, but he is still learning new ways to interact with citizens.

Later this month, the 39th U.S. president will conduct a town hall meeting of sorts, answering questions now being solicited through the Carter Center's website, Facebook page and Twitter account. His responses will be distributed Oct. 19 via online video.

The occasion is part of the Carter Center's 30th anniversary.

Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, launched the international health and human rights organization in 1982, a year after leaving the White House.

Carter Center representatives have monitored elections, implemented disease eradication programs and helped underdeveloped countries expand their food supply and access to health care.

Nearing 32 years, Carter has lived longer after his presidency than any other American executive.

Can we just ask a question here and get him to answer it. ha ha. No! I didn't think so. Seems like a good guy. Not much of a president.

The day of his election, I had to be out of town, calling a basketball game, and would not be back until late. I told my wife, you must go vote for Jimmy Carter, he is going to really help our country. She told me I had lost my mind, and no way was she doing this. Just one more occasion in over 37 years that she was right. Hey, before you laugh too much, I wasn't by myself in this thinking. He did win. It also did not take very long to find out just how bad he really was as president.

Here is my question: "Mr. President, when I met you in person, you were larger than life and were the Governor of the State of Georgia. I was in the 4th grade. Now that you have had sufficient time to reflect over your Presidency, and your life, how do you feel now that you are no longer considered the 'worst' President in the history of our nation?"
