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

Fresh battle at D-Day beaches as veterans say French plan for huge offshore wind farms is 'desecrating' shrine to the fallen

(By Peter Allen, UK Mail Online) - A campaign has been launched to prevent the French government 'desecrating' the D-Day beaches with an immense offshore wind farm.

War veterans gathering in Northern France for the 67th anniversary of the Normandy landings are among those calling for the scheme to be abandoned.

Announced by President Nicolas Sarkozy earlier this year, it would see dozens of 525ft generators – each more than three times the size of the Statue of Liberty - placed less than 10 miles off the landing beaches.
