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.

At Least 1 Dead, 17 Injured in Virginia Tech Shootings; 1 Suspect in Custody

One person was reportedly killed and as many as 17 people are being treated for gunshot wounds after at least one gunman opened fire at the Virginia Tech University campus in Blacksburg, according to officials.

A state government official told The Associated Press that at least one person was killed in a shooting incident at the West Ambler Johnston residence hall early Monday morning.

Judith Chambers, a spokeswoman at Montgomery Regional Hospital, where the injured were taken, told FOX News that 17 individuals from the college are being treated for gunshot wounds and other injuries. The conditions vary and some are in surgery, she said.

The news on this is very confused at the moment. Current reports are saying 20 dead, 28 wounded, one shooter in custody, the other is dead.
