BILLY GRAHAM RELEASED FROM MAYO CLINIC

The Reverend Billy Graham has returned home to North Carolina. He was released Saturday from outpatient treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, after three weeks of evaluation and surgery.

In a statement, Graham said it was a "much longer stay" -- and "the various surgeries were more complicated" -- than he expected.

The 83-year-old evangelist had a small, nonlethal skin cancer removed from his face and underwent a separate operation to relieve a sinus condition and a bronchial infection.
