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.

Sell Airports — For the Children

Another good idea; too bad we probably won't see it in our lifetimes...

From John Hood's Daily Journal:

Let’s sell Charlotte Douglas, Piedmont Triad, and Raleigh-Durham International airports to private enterprise. Local governments would receive a huge cash windfall, which they can use for high-priority construction projects such as schools or roads, while passengers would receive better, cheaper service.
