Keep Kosher

Writer David Foster Wallace died last week of an apparent suicide. Although his style of writing isn't generally up my alley, I really enjoyed this article of his for gourmet magazine, about the Maine Lobster Festival. Growing up in New England, we would occasionally actually cook lobster at home. Generally, I think I would have enjoyed a little more on the pro-lobsterfest side, but it's hard to argue with the facts he presents. Although I don't think I'm going to give up on the seafoody deliciousness, I was interested to learn more about this sea creature. (It's not just a pile of armor and legs.)

(Wallace could have used a little more armor. Or a little more Annie Hall)
