Billy Graham's 93rd Birthday
Monday is Billy Graham's 93rd birthday. That gave me an excuse to dig out photos of Billy Graham Day in Charlotte, NC, in 1971.
President Nixon spoke at the event. Some political dirty tricks that were considered to be used at the rally ended up as part of the Watergate Hearings.
I also learned that a little old lady on a church bus who asks, "Young Man, what is your affiliation?" isn't asking to see my press pass.
