Jimmy Carter’s Hometown Reflects on Its Native Son

From a Wall Street Journal story by Cameron McWhirter headlined “As Jimmy Carter Enters Hospice Care, Former President’s Hometown Reflects on Native Son”:

“He’d stop and talk to people, didn’t matter who you were,” said Meshia Williams, 54 years old, who has lived in Plains most of her life. “He would sit down with you, play with your baby.”
