Time names ‘The Protester’ as ‘Person of Year’

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) — “The Protester” has been named Time’s “Person of the Year” for 2011.

The magazine cited dissent across the Middle East that has spread to Europe and the United States and says these protesters are reshaping global politics.

Last year, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg got the honor.

It goes to the person the magazine believes most influenced events of the past year.

Other previous winners have included heads of state and rock stars.

Billy Graham’s son says father is recovering well

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The Rev. Franklin Graham says his father, evangelist Billy Graham, is recovering well from his latest bout of pneumonia.

Franklin Graham told CBS’s “The Early Show” on Wednesday that his father is getting ready for Christmas at his home near Asheville.

Franklin Graham says his father is the only person he knows who enjoys the hospital and the people he meets there. Billy Graham was hospitalized for a week recently after suffering from congestion.

Franklin Graham says his father tries to work a little each day, answering mail and working on a new book about salvation.

The younger Graham says his father never expected to live to age 93. He says his father’s current book, “Nearing Home,” is not just for older people but has lessons for everyone.
