It's one of the things that makes Jimmy Carter such a great ex-President. He and his wife actually worked at Habitat sites, not the photo op of the former President with a hammer or bucket of paint but actual work with other volunteers. I respect all who support Habitat.
Sorry he was far from a great president, as a matter of fact he was one of our worst. On the other hand he is a great man of strong moral character. We all fail at one thing or another and as a president he was a failure. But he has accomplished much since then much he wouldn't have been able to do if he had not been president. But it also goes to show that true charity does not come from government programs but from individual people and he is the finest example of that. His selfless acts show what good people are capable of. Unlike the Ted Kennedy's of the world who only give it lip service and expect others to pick up the tab.

So true.
On a sad note the presidency was not kind to him.

In 1981, Carter returned to Georgia to his peanut farm, which he had placed into a blind trust during his presidency to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest. Unfortunately, he found that the trustees had mismanaged the trust, leaving him over one million dollars in debt.

So even though he was a failure as a president. He had impeccable character and the highest moral standards.

If private charities could do it all, we wouldn't need government programs.

Private charities did exactly that up until FDR and they did a much better job of it.

I agree that Carter was not a good president, but as you say, he is a fine man who has used his title to do countless acts of kindness and works for humanity in the years since he was in office.

HPV causes at 33% of laryngeal cancers.

HPV causes at least 22% of non-small cell lung cancers.

The anti-smokers' studies are all based on nothing but lifestyle questionnaires that ignore the role of infection.

Any study funded by an industry in an attempt to promote their product is suspect.

This info is from the "Carol" who wants to, "genocide the children of antis."
She does have some good info now and then, but it's hard to take her seriously when she comes out with some of her BS.
I can't help but wonder why she's never picked up on " Dr. Mary's monkey". Now that's a real and likley source for some of the cancer we're now seeing in people.

Here's what David Goerlitz, former Winston pitchman turned anti-tobacco devotee says about his work with anti tobacco in its present form.
http://www.haloscan.com/comments/mbsiegel/872...
There has to be a way I can give more than my input and sympathy. I'm working on this, but right now I am sooo angry I can't see straight. Each day it gets worse. I need to calm down before I expose what I now know is happening. Over the last couple years, I thought I was paranoid,and could not bring my self to see and believe what I was actually seeing and "hearing" from inside the Tobacco Control movement.

I feel like the guy who helped build the atom bomb,(for the greater good) and then realized what a huge mistake I made in making that choice. I guess
it's "My Bad". Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Sheri; David G. is a hired gun. He's nothing more, nothing less.
It's obvious he still works for Big Tobacco, but now it's undercover as a 'stealth worker' with a new cover.

Paranoid much?

Do you have any proof?
Or will you continue to stand solely on wild conjecture?

I posted this news to David on Dr. Siegel's blog. I'll get back to you with his response.
