Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Dig It: A domestic diva, a poodle and a culinary treat

By Lisa R. Boone
Winston-Salem Journal

Martha Stewart - that diva of domestication, that doyenne of decorating - tiptoed into Stokes County yesterday, tempted by truffles.

And she found what she was sniffing for: black diamonds - of the culinary world, that is. Truffles, fungi in the mushroom family that are found 2 to 3 inches underground near the roots of trees, are one of the most expensive foods in the world. They cost $30 an ounce at Whole Foods on Miller Street, said Landon Linville of the produce department, but gourmet-food Web sites list them for up to $155 an ounce.
