FRAIL BILLY GRAHAM PREPARES TO PREACH IN SAN DIEGO

FRAIL BILLY GRAHAM PREPARES TO PREACH IN SAN DIEGO (San Diego-AP) -- The Reverend Billy Graham says he "can't stand very long at a time" -- but the 84-year-old evangelist plans to preach Thursday through Sunday to anticipated crowds of 260-thousand people in San Diego. Graham told reporters Tuesday at Qualcomm Stadium, "You can see I'm shaking now." Declining to take questions, he explained: "I used to hold press conferences, but I notice the pope never holds press conferences, so I think I'll do what he does as I get older." Evelyn Husband, the widow of Space Shuttle "Columbia" commander Rick Husband, is scheduled to speak Sunday. Tuesday, teams of volunteers roamed the stadium, praying over each of Qualcomm's 60-thousand seats for those who will attend the mission.
