Friends in Plains prepared to welcome President Jimmy Carter home after cancer treatment with political style campaign signs inspired by a Mike Luckovich cartoon in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
They plan to stake out "Jimmy Carter for cancer Survivor," placards along the roads where the Carters are expected to travel on their way back from Atlanta.
Carter announced to a waiting world Thursday that the cancer he has is melanoma, and that it has spread to his brain.
Despite the diagnosis, Carter was not planning to hang around. He wants, as much as possible, to keep up his busy schedule for the fall.
