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.

Protect Veterans' Rights & Benefits

AAUW Action Network

A message from the American Association of University Women's Action Network:

This Veterans Day, Ask Congress to Protect Veterans' Rights and Benefits
Today, we take a moment to remember our nation's veterans and pay tribute to those who have served our country through military service. Here on AAUW's Action Network, we think one powerful way to thank these men and women is to advocate for theirfreedom from sexual assault and their access to quality health care.
This Veterans Day, tell your members of Congress to support legislation that would protect the rights and benefits of those who have answered our country’s call to protect our way of life.
Our country's veterans deserve this message of support, and they deserve action from the 112th Congress on issues that impact their safety and quality of life. Take action today, and share this message with friends and family so they can show their appreciation for our service men and women as well.
You can send a message to your senators and representative by visiting AAUW's Two-Minute Activist.
Remember: You can always help strengthen AAUW's efforts to support equity in our country's armed forces by making a tax-deductible donation to AAUWs Public Policy Fund!
Double your impact! Tweet, Facebook, and forward this action alert to friends and family.
