(Newser) – Evangelist Billy Graham was admitted to a North Carolina hospital last night with an infection in his lungs, the AP reports. Doctors say he is receiving antibiotics for what is probably bronchitis, and resting comfortably in stable condition. Graham, 93, received treatment for pneumonia last November and last May. According to his staff, he's been in good health but stays home because of his age. He's also working on a book. (Read more Billy Graham stories.)
