Thought I was the only one who noticed snark. Truly does ruin conversations and hurts my feelings, lol. Author seems to focus on political writers and journalists, but I see this as a terrible epidemic among 'common folk' like us. If you've seen the look, you know it, and you probably hate it like me. Or at least I hope you do. Maybe you're a snarker. Didn't read much of the book, but I am intrigued.
