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.

Growing Support for the Occupy Movement

Today, there's news of increasing support for the Occupy movement. As national news media finally begin covering the protests in various cities across the USA, hope grows that lasting changes may actually result. The corporate world, of course, turns a deaf ear, but as the sign below says...
Other groups, such as New York's New School faculty, also issued statements of support: http://www.artandeducation.net/announcement/the-new-school-faculty-in-support-of-occupy-wall-street/
There are a few bad apples in the NYPD barrel, but I hope the above photo is evidence that many of our public servants understand and empathize with the protesters.
