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.

World’s Oldest Person Dies

Texas resident lived to be 115

(By Bruce Felps, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth) -
Eunice Sanborn, who lived in Jacksonville, Texas, passed away today in her home.

At age 115, she was considered the oldest living human in the world — which is just redundant because where else do people live? — after her predecessor, Eugenie Blanchard, passed away in November.

Perhaps having a name that starts with the letters “E” and “U” contributes to longevity. Then again, in the immortal words of Motörhead front-man Lemmy Kilmister, “The key to survival is not dying.” Cannot argue with that.
