Carter says his front yard is where he wants to be buried





PLAINS, GA. - Folks in Plains were just delighted -- in a respectfully restrained way -- when former President Jimmy Carter said in a TV interview a few weeks ago that he wants to be buried in his front yard in his hometown.

Many in this little peanut-growing town of 640 people believe his decision to be laid to rest here rather than 120 miles away in Atlanta, home of his presidential library, or Arlington National Cemetery will help maintain the prosperity he brought to Plains.
