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

Nifong to lose law license

Prosecutor calls punishment appropriate; he will not appeal

I'm sure Nifong won't appeal. He knows he is lucky they aren't pressing criminal charges against him.

There needs to be some kind of reckoning for the pain and ruin he has brought into those boys' lives. Personally, I think both Nifong and Crystal Mangum have gotten off far too lightly for this.
