This article illustrates a visit to the Maine Lobster Festival. It pretty much everything you can think of lobster related. It focuses mostly on the debate as to wether or not boiling Lobsters alive is cruel. PETA makes there position clear while the lobster farmers continually say that lobsters lack a cerebral cortex and there fore feel no pain. When it gets down to it, people don't really know wether or not they feel pain or to what degree they feel pain. It talks about how this festival could almost be concodered a masacre with 100s of cooker boiling lobsters alive one after the other. Over all it was an interesting article over an issue I frankly never thought about.
