A nice update on Jimmy Carter

“I think the fact that he and my grandmother both came from that small town — it’s a 600 person village, really — and it’s not near any interstate and it is truly out in the country and it is a fundamental part of who he is and who he has been for his whole life,” Jason said. “There is no other place in the world that he would be at peace other than Plains.”

I'm in a bit of a dark hole and would love prayers

I am struggling to get started in my new career as a salesman
I'm in a terrible amount of physical pain

I can't see my new Rheumatologist until 8-1-2024

Everyday I seem to procrastinate with work and dig myself a hole that gets deeper and deeper.

Thanks for your consideration.

TIME100 Health: Jimmy Carter - Determined Health Hero

I never expected the likes of former President Jimmy Carter to traffic much in vanity, but the one time I spoke to him, back in 2006, he allowed himself a tiny flicker of it. At the time, the then-octogenarian was preparing for a journey to Africa to help pursue his mission of eradicating Guinea worm, and, impressed that a man his age would be making such a journey, I said to him, “I’m sure you hear this all the time, Mr. President, but it’s an inspiration to talk to you.” He responded with a laugh. “That’s OK,” he said, “I don’t mind hearing it.”

War All The Time


I thought that the basis of this collection would be political - that there would be a protest against war all the time.

The poem is about an encounter between the poet and his mailman. The mailman is pissed that the poet isn't always reckless drunk.

It's one of my favorite poems about aging and becoming more mature.

There are/were DU'ers that were opposed to BOTH the Iraq war AND the Israeli response to Oct.7

Some of us, like Dennis Kucinich and Bernie Sanders, had better ideas of what successful responses might look like.

If you opposed BOTH the Iraq war AND the current Israeli response to Oct.7, please check in here.

If you are willing to do so, please post actions that both countries could have taken to pursue peace and avoid war.

Thank you in advance for your consideration
