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.

Rachel Carson and a rant

From Sara:

Just because I made a reference to this in a blog entry posted yesterday...here's an article about Rachel Carson and Silent Spring.
