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

Parents thought about their children. Children thought about their friends. From all walks of life people tried to comprehend the kind of monster that stalked the Virginia Tech campus.
