Opponents living near proposed site are upsetYours truly opines: For some reason, Fox 8 News and the radio station out of Stuart, VA are reporting that both the Forsyth & Stokes County planning boards have approved this request; that isn't so. Since I'm on the Stokes County Planning Board, I know for a FACT that we haven't heard this request.

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.
