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.

Carr will stay in jail

Anchorman will not post bond in traffic fatality

By Titan Barksdale
Winston-Salem Journal

Locked arm in arm with his mother, WXII-TV anchorman Tolly Carr, with head bowed, walked slowly toward the Forsyth County Magistrate’s Office yesterday.

Shortly after 2 p.m., Carr walked inside and stood before a magistrate to face additional charges in the traffic death of Casey Bokhoven, 26. Carr’s attorneys emerged from the office about 30 minutes later, but he was not with them.

Carr, 32, was charged yesterday with felony death by vehicle; bond was set at $100,000. He was initially charged with driving while impaired on March 11 - the day that police say Carr hit Bokhoven.
