Satire (n) A literary work in which human vice or folly is attacked through irony, derision, or wit.

I think about the literature that, for me, was truly formative back in high school. 90% of it was satire-- Catch-22, Matt Groening's Life in Hell, the work of Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Coupland.

I really have not written enough satire. In fact, I discovered last night that Melissa is quite the master of satire herself (as if I had any doubt... anybody who can wield sarcasm so skillfully-- must have a good dose of satirical wit to them).

Some Other Day is satire in the purest sense, but I need to write more.
