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: Womb environment 'makes men gay'

I've never seen so many weasel words collected together in a single article.

It really amounts to junk science and the perpetrators of this mess have violated one of the fundamental tenets of empirical observation: correlation is not causation.

As Jiminy Cricket would say, "When you wish upon a star..."
