I have heard three stories this week about the homeless on the maintream media newscasts. The latest story was on ABC News (at the top of the hour following news about a robust and growing economy--one with low unemployment where the Fed Reserve has to raise interest rates by a 1/4 point) was about...well...people being homeless. Did all of these people have homes during the Clinton Administration? I don't remember hearing much about the homeless during those years unless it was during some pitch for a new welfare program...

    Actually, the homeless surface every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Apparently, they vacation in Florida during the rest of the year. Charitable contributions generally go up during this time period too. Hmmmmm.........

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
