Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

The Magical Means to Keep the Kingdom Clean

From the Free Market Minute:

Streets clean enough to eat off of? Not quite, but close. Trashcans are strategically placed, but no more so than in an ordinary city. Hundreds of thousands of people travel the streets of Disney World, generating tons of trash daily. No signs that threaten tickets, fines, or dollar penalties for littering in this city; surprisingly, no cute pleas to be a "responsible citizen," either. In fact, the mailbox-looking trash bins are unobtrusive in olive or other colors that blend into the scenery.
