CAN A LEOPARD CHANGE ITS SPOTS?
Monday, September 11, 2006
Sun Gazette Newspapers - Arlington�>�News: "U.S. Rep. Jim Moran, D-8th, lauded the "perfect professionalism" of Arlington's public-safety personnel, who responded to the Pentagon after the crash and won worldwide accolades for containing the damage with no additional loss of life. He also praised the community-wide outreach effort that occurred after the attacks. "Arlington has woven together the fabric of a community that can't be torn apart," he said. But Moran then maneuvered into more sensitive ground, suggesting that the country was not safer and intimating that the Bush administration's foreign policy was headed in the wrong directions. "More people hate us," Moran said, a comment that drew an outburst from the crowd. "My brother died on 9/11 - don't make this political," a woman in audience cried out."

"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.
