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.

Airplane pilots march on Wall Street

Hundreds of pilots from United/Continental 
showed up in full dress and made a show in 
support for their union during an ongoing labor 
dispute. They stood in an area on Broad 
Street, near Wall Street and the Stock 
Exchange.
