Still getting it done at 86

This story from says that the Rev. Billy Graham is working the crowds this weekend in New York City, notwithstanding his age and ill-health and the fact that already he has "preached to more than 210 million people in 185 countries."

In The Man to See is retold the story of Edward Bennett Williams using the Rev. Graham as a character witness in the John Connally case. When EBW asked Graham to state what he did for a living, Graham replied something like "spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world," to which one of the jurors involuntarily replied, "Amen."
