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.

Join MoveOn Mobile's Rapid Response

A message from

Last week, the sprinklers were turned on—in the 27-degree cold—at the park where Occupy Denver was protesting. We were able to use MoveOn Mobile, a new system we just launched, to get the word out in minutes and generate a flood of calls to Denver's mayor. 

We're sending text messages whenever we hear about an Occupy site that needs quick support, or in other moments when there's a critical issue that requires urgent action. We'll only send you 2-3 texts a month.

After you sign up, we'll send you a text message right away and you'll need to respond to confirm your signup. You can also text the word "JOIN" to MOVEON (668-366) to sign up.

Thanks for all you do.
