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.

The children who never leave home


I have to wonder, “Whatever happened to good ol' fashioned shame?”

It used to be that a person in his 20s and 30s who was out of school and into the job market and still living with his parents was too humiliated to show his face in the light of day.

Yet, these days, a lot of stay-at-home kids feel completely at ease with the experience. Psychologists, sociologists and other experts say it has become socially acceptable to be a young adult and still live at home.
