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.

A word of caution: It’s not dead until the session is adjourned, and then only until the next session as Dennis Mansfield, who has some years in the trenches on abortion-related legislation at the Idaho Legislature, writes in his blog <http://www.dennismansfield.com/business/2012/03/the-political-obituary-on-the-idahos-ultrasound-bill-may-be-a-bit-premie.html>
