Image hosted by Three kinds of people have been revealed in the United States in the wake of Katrina. First the heroes who have jumped in with prayers and support. Second, those sitting on the sidelines waiting for others to help. Third, those who would exploit the agonizing pain,suffering and loss of others to advance their own political or ideological agenda. Which one are you?

    What a desperately sad photograph. I'm a homebody, and can't imagine be aged (and fairly ill, by the looks of her), and then have my home ripped to shreds around me. The obsessive focus on those in Convention center and stadium managed entirely to miss a different type of tragedy, didn't it?

    Wouldn't you know it, BW. Pictures like this don't get ratings and fit into the media's agenda.

"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.
