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.

RE: Stokes is wary of mental-health cuts

CenterPoint is a waste of money and space. The County should have found another provider long ago. Actually, the County shouldn't be involved in providing "mental health services" to anyone, but that's another story altogether.

During the years I was involved in County government, CenterPoint was just one failure after another. They were all about trying to infiltrate the schools and doing things they had no business doing, but when it came to actually providing the services they were supposed to, they were a dismal failure.

Stokes County stuck with CenterPoint, in theory anyway, because we were cooperating with Forsythg County in providing services. In truth, Stokes County's taxpayers were doing little more than subsidizing the services provided to Forsyth County.
