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.

3 months for I-40 rock slide cleanup 'unrealistic'

HARMON DEN (Asheville Citizen-Times) — State transportation officials warned Tuesday that work clearing Interstate 40 after the most destructive rock slide in more than a decade could take longer than first expected.

The N.C. Department of Transportation also offered some early glimpses of what will be involved — from precarious cable-mounted drilling to using a contraption resembling a moon rover to traverse a boulder pile more than 150 feet high.

The slide, about three miles east of the Tennessee line, has shut down I-40 from Exit 20 to just inside Tennessee.
