...and Billy Carter Time too.

In focusing on pop culture responses to the Carter presidency, you just can't leave out Billy. He gave us so much to work with, Georgia style. Billy left us for a higher plane back in 1988. But we will celebrate Brother Carter's memory in novelty song.

Here he was in better years selling his beer:

  1. Hey, Andy, have you read the book CRACKERS by Roy Blount, Jr.? It's a great meditation on the cultural ramifications of the Carter presidency. Bye!

  2. Hey Jack, thanks for the heads up on the book. Speaking of which, I saw your article and am thinking about getting a subscription to Oxford American so I can be the first on my block to see what you write.

  3. As a frugal mom of 4 with over 20 years of experience shopping on a budget, I have tested just about every level of grocery coupon use that a person can do; from all, to some, to none, and back again. Coupon use will vary depending on people's circumstances. I have known many people who refuse to use coupons because they feel they just don't have time. As a working mom myself, who barely has time to shop for groceries, let alone clip grocery coupons each week, I truly do understand. Yet, not using a grocery coupon on an item that you're going to purchase anyways is just like throwing money away. Yes, it does take a little time each week to clip the coupons and take them to the store, but just like earning money takes time, so does saving money!
