In the annals of "Kiss Cam" at athletic events around the country, perhaps the sweetest freeze frame came last week at an Atlanta Braves game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Atlanta.
Former President Jimmy Carter, 90, and his wife, Rosalynn, 88, — big Braves fans and season ticket-holders — were in their usual seats near the Braves dugout, and received a loud cheer when they were shown on the video board. Carter kissed his wife of 69 years, and then flashed his famous smile as the crowd roared more.
The Carters stayed around for all nine innings of Thursday night's game that the Braves lost 5-0.
Also last week, Carter said that he has received the second of four planned doses of a drug to fight his cancer. He told an audience at the Carter Center in Atlanta that no further radiation treatments are planned. The treatment was aimed at four tumors.
Carter said he experienced no "ill effects" after recently receiving the second dose of Keytruda, a recently approved drug to help the immune system seek out and destroy cancer cells. "And we'll know what the positive effects are later on," he said.
Brian Williams back on the job Tuesday
Brian Williams returns to NBC News headquarters on Tuesday to participate in MSNBC's coverage of Pope Francis' visit to the U.S. The former "NBC Nightly News" anchor has been off the air since Feb. 8 due to his false statements regarding his coverage of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq. Williams' inaccurate account of being in a Chinook helicopter that was forced to the ground by enemy fire eventually cost him his job as the face of the most-watched evening newscast on television (he was replaced by Lester Holt in June). But after a six-month suspension, Williams is getting a second chance with a new assignment of handling breaking news on MSNBC — the ratings-challenged outlet where Williams honed his skills before succeeding Tom Brokaw on "NBC Nightly News" in 2004. NBC News Chairman Andy Lack insists that Williams, who is not doing interviews before his relaunch, is enthused about the assignment and that the prolonged agony concerning the controversy is "in his rearview mirror."
