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.

On the 10th Anniversary of the War on Afghanistan

A message from the V-Day website: 
V-Day is proud to share a video message from V-Day ally Malalai Joya, one of the most courageous and tireless activists in the world. On this 10th anniversary of the War on Afghanistan, Malalai and V-Day, in solidarity, are calling for the withdrawal of all troops and an end to fundamentalism and occupation. We also call on our officials to redirect funding for the war towards education so that the Afghan people can bring about their own independence.
