Mandela Released from Hospital

Mandela Hospital Watch is over for now: Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid activist and former South African president, was discharged from the hospital on Saturday after spending a week there to be treated for pneumonia. The 94-year-old Nobel laureate, who stepped down as president in 1999, now counts three health scares in the past four months, as he was briefly hospitalized in March and underwent a long hospitalization in December for gallstone surgery. Feel better soon!
