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.

Dump DOMA

Dump Doma
On Friday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) announced that he intends to bring the Respect for Marriage Act, a bill that would repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), before his committee for a vote in November. 

Even as more states move to expand marriage equality to their same-sex couples, these couples are still prevented from partaking in many of the most basic benefits of marriage because the federal government won't recognize their unions as legal. 

Please take a moment to add your name to PFAW's petitionurging Congress to Dump DOMA and end this unconstitutional, discriminatory policy once and for all.
