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.

RE: Moving Dead Becomes City's Second Priority

You may or may not watch Fox News, but...

There is video of one of the Fox reporters talking to people in the street in New Orleans. She talks to a guy who tells her that he is looking for his wife. It seems they were on the roof of their house and he was trying to hold on to her hand, but he couldn't. He says that when his wife realized she couldn't hold on, she told him to take care of the kids and the grand-kids. He says he is lost, that she was all he had. The reporter was crying like a baby. It is one of the most heart-wrenching things I've ever seen.
