Lobsters not allowed at meeting

Atlantic lobsters may be at the tipping point, but there will be no five year ban on lobstering after all-- The American Lobster Management Board will consider three options-- a 75% reduction, a 50% reduction, or no change-- and report back at their November meeting.  Boston Globe.

I've ordered lobster once in my life, and found that dismembering an animal that was alive only minutes before to be quite a disgusting experience.  To each his own, I guess.

Lobster and steamers are my favorite foods! I remember one time I let my cat play with a lobster before I gave him "the plunge." (His claws were wrapped.) All animals were once living, regardless of how recently, so I don't feel bad at all eating them - especially if they're lobsters drenched in butter! Yummy! ;-)
