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.

Chihuahua in stolen truck found and returned to owner

RURAL HALL (By LAURA GRAFF, Winston-Salem Journal) - Vanessa Calvery, a part-time personal chef since being laid off in January, was driving home from delivering meals on Tuesday evening when she saw a Chihuahua standing in the middle of a road near her house.

It was pouring rain and, though stray dogs sometimes roam the streets near her neighborhood, Calvery has two Chihuahuas, and something about this dog made her stop the car.

She got out in the downpour, bundled the dog into her car and brought him home.

The little dog wore no collar, but he looked loved, Calvery said.
