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.

Divinely Naive

Interesting article by Paul Chesser:

RALEIGH -- Every day in the online journal Jewish World Review, publisher Binyamin Jolkovsky solicits prayers from readers for a friend who is ailing.

But if a recent study of the "medicinal power of prayer" is to be believed, then such pleadings aren't worth the trouble.
