Looks like nothing more serious than a case of air sickness for Jimmy Carter: The former president, just days shy of his 86th birthday, was taken to a hospital in Cleveland today immediately after his plane touched down, reports WOIO. Carter "developed an upset stomach" during the flight and was taken to the hospital for observation, says the Carter Center in Atlanta. "He is resting comfortably and is expected to resume his book tour this week." More at AOL News.
