My Lobster Is Hairy, Sir;
Have I Gotta Job for You
There were olden days when wars were fought over salt. Only the rich had the stuff. Marie Antoinette lost her head after she declared, of the poor, “Let them eat salt” -- though that “salt” was quickly changed to “cake” when it was slowly explained to the airy young blond French queen that it was actually only the rich who had salt, ergo, it might be better to suggest the poor eat, say, “cake.” Atta girl. Now…Continue

[The Capital] - February 13, 2012 -
This time last year, Natural Resources Police officers patrolling the waters of the Chesapeake found poachers' nets again and again.

Saturday, February 11, 2012: Winter just can’t win this year, especially along the coast. Minor snow dustings are the best it can muster. Suits me fine.

The latest polls show my readership took a bit of a drop from just over 22 million readers down to approximately 9 – and most of those are in Rahway Prison.

Wow, there’s life out there. This past week I got a goodly slew of emails, blog-mails, and chatments (comments picked up while chatting with angling and non-so folks, often at church). Much of this week’s admittedly ambulatory column is thusly derived.
Keep those card and letters coming. Just don’t send any alerts. And what’s up with all this alert madness? There are those nearly nonstop “Silver Alerts” on highway digital signs, whereby we’re alerted to look for oldening Jersey…Continue
