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.

Today's Real Top Story: What's Next For NOLA?

Considering that 80 percent of New Orleans residents were reported to have left town, that means 20 percent are still there and probably didn't have the financial means to leave. I'm sure that those figures didn't factor in NOLA's high number of homeless, either.

I have a friend who lives in the area. His parish has experienced what is referred to as 'massive devastation,' but no one can really be sure: they can't even get in to access the situation.

This is so incredibly sad and so very devastating to such a culturally rich and great US city.
