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.

Help for RiverRun

From an editorial in today's Winston-Salem Journal:

The RiverRun International Film Festival last weekend in Winston-Salem was once again a success, one that brought in thousands of visitors who spent thousands of dollars. The festival has more than proved itself since its modest start here in 2003, and the city and county governments should encourage the festival's success by allocating money to it.

As a Forsyth County taxpayer and W/S resident, I’m game. Our city and county governments currently spend tax dollars on far less fiscally wise causes, so why not contribute to a sure-fire winner like RiverRun?
