Perhaps I shall have to re-think my opinion of the great man.
Jimmy Carter was a sweet old southern baptist gent. From the way punk was depicted in the press, on Quincy, and what-not... from what he knew, how can it be hard to understand his perception at the time (if it is true). I'm sure (now) with JC's Habitat work, he's been around and befriended lottsa "punk rockish" types by now. Granted, probably the aforementioned lefty types, but still. Good dude regardless. Anyway… I don’t think punk rock by design was meant to be condoned by US Presidents, good or bad-uns.
