Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Foxx family helps ring in the day

Request for stock-exchange tour leads to a special offer

Foxx had called the exchange last week to find out if they could tour the place while they were in New York on a family holiday.
