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.
Terri Schiavo Buried; Family Offended by Grave Marker
From CNS News:
The words on Terri Schiavo's Clearwater, Fla., grave are another insult to her parents.~ Press reports said Michael Schiavo inscribed the phrase, "I kept my promise," on her grave marker -- a reference to his supposed promise that he would not keep her alive artificially. Although Terri died on March 31, 2005, her grave marker says she "Departed this Earth" on Feb. 25, 1990 --- the day she collapsed, suffering severe brain damage. Schiavo's cremated remains were buried Monday, and Terri's parents said they were not told about the burial until after it happened.
