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.

Lisa Edelstein (House) Video


A video from MoveOn.org:
If Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan win, we could lose choice. This is horrifying. And this is for real—women, including rape survivors, could once again be forced to turn to dangerous back-alley abortions if we don't fight back now.
Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Todd Akin, and the entire Republican Party platform support a "personhood" amendment that would ban all abortions.1 Ryan and Akin even tried to limit the definition of rape to "forcible rape" to block some women's access to safe abortions.2 We can't afford to lose. Period. 
We need to make sure that every woman knows just how far Republicans are willing to go in their War on Women.

Thanks for all you do.
