Snark: to annoy or irritate

"Snark" has been in English language dictionaries since at least 1906, and Lewis Carroll used the word to describe a mythological animal in his poem, The Hunting of the Snark (1874). Most recently, the word has come to characterize snappish, sarcastic, or mean-spirited comments or actions directed at those who annoy or irritate us.

At first, this blog was just going be a place to gripe, but because it's more satisfying to take action than it is to merely complain, now most of the posts/reposts suggest ways to get involved in solving problems.

Stephen Colbert Takes on Fracking






If you missed Thursday's Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert had on Tom Ridge, the former Homeland Security chief who is now getting paid as a lobbyist for the oil and gas industry to push their fracking plan in Pennsylvania.

Stephen called out Tom Ridge and the oil industry for deceiving people about fracking -- and for poisoning America's drinking water. It's really worth seeing.
