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.

Missing Boy Scout has been found alive

A 12-year-old Greensboro youth missing since Saturday in rugged North Carolina mountain terrain was found alive this morrning [sic], searchers said.

Michael was found shortly just before 11 a.m. today in a heavily wooded area northeast of the primitive campsite where his Boy Scout troop was camping over the weekend, parks spokeswoman Tina White said, quoting radio traffic.

Rescuers are walking him out of the woods now. "The family's also running to meet their son," White said.

Michael is in relatively good health, but a little weak, White said. Michael was found 1.5 miles from the camp, CNN is reporting.

Everyone likes a little good news now and again.
