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.

Charges against Ric Flair dismissed


Prosecutors on Monday dismissed misdemeanor charges against professional wrestler Ric Flair, who'd been accused of assaulting another driver on Interstate 485 last year.

Charles Keller, a Mecklenburg courts spokesman, said the charges were dismissed because witnesses did not show up for court on Monday.

In November, Flair was accused of getting out of his vehicle on I-485, grabbing another driver by his neck and then kicking the door of the man's Toyota 4Runner.

Flair denied the allegations.
