Jimmy Carter Breaks Hip On His Way To Turkey Hunt

Former President Jimmy Carter is recovering from surgery after falling and breaking a hip this morning. In a statement, The Carter Center said the 94 year old former leader of the free world was leaving his home in Plains, Ga., to go turkey hunting when he fell. He's now recovering at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Ga., after surgery that his surgeon said was successful. His wife, Rosalynn, is with him.

“President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit,” the Carter Center said in its statement. “He hopes the state of Georgia will allow him to roll over the unused limit to next year.” LOL!!!
