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.

Occupy Wall Street Reports


Where's the national news coverage on the Wall Street protests?  For a week, all I could find were individual blogs, FaceBook postings, and YouTube videos. Something important is happening, but for the most part, the public media was silent. This week, slowly, they begin to speak. Watch these videos now, as they may disappear.
