Nixon's confidant

Billy Graham is having a moment, thanks to the new PBS documentary on The American Experience. Of course, in South Carolina, where I grew up, just over the state line from Charlotte, his moment has never really passed. (You leave the Charlotte airport on the Billy Graham Parkway.) I have a hazy childhood memory of being taken to one of his massive revivals in a football stadium in Charlotte. I was prepared for miracles and wild-eyed enthusiasts speaking in tongues, but the event seemed pretty sedate. Maybe we caught him on an off night.
