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.

A Goat Walks Into A Piano Store...

AMMON, Idaho (By Tammy Harmer, KIFI) - Are you missing a goat? Perhaps one that likes the piano?

A mother and child had a goat follow them into the Piano Gallery Store in Ammon on Monday.

A store clerk used an extension cord as a leash and kept it until Animal Control could pick it up.

The goat, now named Beethoven for his obvious love of music, is hanging out at the Idaho Falls Animal Shelter.

"I walked in and said ‘holy cow’ and there was this little goat and he was just adorable,” employee Lorrie Bridges said. “I was trying to explain which restroom it was in and all of a sudden there was a ‘meeh! meeh!’ and I said that's the one.”

The store said it has been a fun story to tell customers all day.

If Beethoven is not reclaimed, he will not go up for adoption. He is already reserved by someone.
