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.

Morbidly Obese Man Fused to Chair With Urine and Feces for Two Years

Bellaire Man Found Stuck in Chair dies at the Age of 43

Is anyone to blame in the story of a man who lived in his chair for two years?

BELLAIRE,Ohio (By D.K. Wright, WTRF-TV) -
Community reaction has been intense to our story about the morbidly obese man who spent two years in his chair.

Everyone is asking, "how could this happen?"

A man whose skin had fused to his chair, with bedsores, maggots and excrement everywhere. The description from the first responders was horrifying.

Now the 43-year-old Bellaire man has died according to our radio news partner WKKX.

Who is in charge of a case like this? First of all, is it a legal issue? A Belmont County legal authority says it appears that it is not.
