Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

STINK: Postal Worker Makes Special Delivery in Man's Yard

Postal worker in deep doo-doo after using yard as toilet

(By Margy Lynch, Southeast Portland News) -
Don Derfler says his mail carrier had something to deliver all right but what he left behind was nothing resembling mail.

Derfler was waiting for his babysitter when he saw his mailman acting odd at a neighbor’s house across the street. The postal worker then pulled down his pants.

That’s when Derfler starting snapping pictures. The pictures show the postal worker squatting near some bushes and pulling his pants up. Derfler even photographed what was left behind.

“We trust people like the postal service and meter readers and people of that nature,” said Derfler. “To come on to our property and to defecate – it’s just wrong.”

The post office is embarrassed.
