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.

Tough to Swallow

(Fox News) - Democrats running this summer's national convention in Denver have told caterers who want to work the host committee's official events to have eco-friendly proposals ready.

The Denver Post reports fried foods will be forbidden, along with liquid served in individual plastic containers. Plates must be reusable, recyclable or compostable. And, the food must be local, organic or both.

That last one has caterers a bit concerned about practicality and cost, since the growing season is short and the Denver area is often arid. Organizers say caterers will need to be creative, but should still be able to make a profit.
