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.

Ex-KKK man guilty in 1964 killing

(BBC) A former Ku Klux Klan member has been convicted by a US jury of kidnapping and conspiracy in connection with the 1964 murder of two black teenagers. James Seale, 71, a former labourer and police officer, denied killing Charles Eddie Moore and Henry Hezekiah Dee. He could face life in prison for the crimes when he is sentenced in August.
The 19-year-olds were said to have been kidnapped and stuffed into a vehicle owned by Seale before being tied up and drowned in the Mississippi river. Seale was first arrested in 1964 but authorities freed him, citing lack of evidence.

This is interesting. I actually thought the guy had already been convicted of this.
