Back when Bill Clinton was running for president for the first time, my Chicago cousin announced that he was too cynical to vote because Democrats and Republicans had become so much alike he had lost all sense of distinctions. "Tweedledum and Tweedledee," he used to say. Both parties are completely compromised by big business and status quo politics, he said. There was a permanent political class in America — a big tent that covers Republicans and Democrats, their affluent friends, special-interest lobbyists and influential insiders.

Over the summer, Harbor East favorite Pazo shifted its focus from Spanish food to Italian, featuring dishes like this spicy lobster pasta. Pairing freshly cooked lobster with Fresno chili-spiked tomato sauce, Chef Julian Marucci creates a fabulous special occasion dish that's easy to re-create at home. Marucci makes good use of the whole lobster, incorporating the cooked shells to create stock that infuses tomato sauce with the crustacean's unique flavor. The addition of hot Fresno pepper gives the sauce extra -- and welcome -- verve.

Elizabeth Gilbert's first novel takes on a humble subject in an understated style; its modest brilliance sneaks up, though the story will probably hook you on page one. Affectionately true to its characters' nutty integrity, "Stern Men" (Houghton Mifflin, 304 pages, $24) tracks the reluctant evolution of an old island lobstering community from its time-honored brand of brutal individualism to kinder, gentler ways of doing business. The catalyst of change is Ruth Thomas, a daughter of the island just back from boarding school on the mainland, looking for a purposeful life to live on Fort Niles.

The National Aquarium in Baltimore certainly has room for Lincoln, the celebrated white lobster of Raymond, Maine. And it's sure he or she would generate a lot of public interest.But so far, nobody has decided whether to put in a bid for the albino beastie, which his current owners, the Fishermen's Net fish market, have decided to auction.But if you happen to buy it, Morris Martick will cook it up for you at his Restaurant Francais -- any way you like it."If you're willing to pay for it," qualifies Martick, who, oddly enough, has cooked a lobster in a demonstration at the aquarium.

It's nice to splurge. Even when rushed on a weeknight, you may run across times when a celebration is in order. Bring out the lobster, I say! Stashed neatly in your freezer, of course, ready to be thawed quickly and turned into a festive main-dish salad. Be as generous as you like. This salad is imminently flexible, so you can serve as much lobster in it as you can afford. And, if this is all too fancy for you, shrimp makes an excellent stand-in. Serve with a flute of champagne, some crusty bread and a chocolate tart and you'll soon forget that it's just a weeknight.

Oregon has the Lewis and Clark Trail. The Grand Canyon has the Bright Angel Trail. New England has the Lobster Trail. It doesn't? Well, it should. Think of it, a gustatory path from Connecticut to Maine built on the red shells of lobsters: boiled, broiled, steamed, baked -- in eggs, in crepes, in phyllo dough, even in ice cream. This hike is not for everyone. Not for, say, the couple from the Midwest overheard at a downtown Bar Harbor, Maine, restaurant as they laid horrified eyes on their first boiled lobster dinner.

Adhering to the mouthparts of a lobster like a suction-cup toy and sweeping up the lobster's errant food particles like a living napkin is a tiny animal whose anatomy and life cycle are unlike anything seen before, scientists have reported.The creature is so unique in its style and appearance that the biologists who discovered it have given it not just its own species name, or its own genus or its own family, but have moved way up the classification scale and declared that it is an entirely new phylum.

Toby is one lucky lobster. He was born with a blue-hued shell, a 1-in-2 million variation that arises as the result of an excess of a certain protein. The crew of the Pot Luck fishing boat plucked Toby from the waters near Ocean City in June 2012. After a few nerve-racking days chilling in the lobster tank at Martin Fish Co. in West Ocean City , Toby was put on display at the National Aquarium in Washington. But then the Washington location of the Aquarium closed in September, and Toby and 1,700 other animals from the collection needed to be moved to Baltimore.

I have a confession to make. I kind of love Red Lobster. Yes, I live in the land of the jumbo lump crabcakes and fresh rockfish, but there's something oddly comforting for me about the chain restaurant that my dad took me to as a kid. I'm known for forcing my uppity Maryland friends to make the trek to White Marsh or Columbia or now Arundel Mills! (What can I say I'm a fan.) Once a busboy stopped my party from being seated because the table was "still a little buttery. " I loved it. So I have been watching with concern as my favorite chain restaurant has fallen on hard times.

John Rorapaugh, Profish's director of sustainable initiatives, says that Eddie has been sequestered from the other lobsters so that someone doesn't accidentally sell him.  The sharp-eyed lobster spotter, Rorapaugh said, was Peter Martone, Profish's lobster buyer, who saw the calico, named...

Michael Phelps' latest love interest is 22-year-old Sarah Herndon, according to an interview with the waitress/model from California (the same description as his previous flame, Megan Rossee, whom he dumped just after Christmas).

The Patriots' coach might be a sore loser, but Boston mayor Thomas Menino has sportingly made good on the losing bet he made with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on the AFC Championship game.  A package filled with goods from Boston's public markets arrived at Baltimore City Hall on Friday. Inside were cannoli, ravioli, various packaged goods and an assortment of seafood, including mussels, scallops, oysters -- and four live lobsters. Rawlings-Blake, who was not in Baltimore on Friday, will be making a visit next week to the Cottage Avenue Community , the Park Circle transitional housing program for homeless families she chose as the recipients of the package.

WALPOLE, Maine -- The small white buoys bobbing on the bright blue water of the Damariscotta River mark this as a dangerous spot for lobsters.Tethered to each buoy is a line that reaches down to a lobster pot on the river bottom.In 1997, the state's 6,500 lobstermen tended 2.6 million traps and hauled in 47 million pounds of lobster, a record that was repeated last year and looks likely to be matched this year.Along most of the northern Atlantic seaboard, including the maritime provinces of Canada, lobster catches are at all-time highs and have defied biologists' predictions of a crash.

North Star Tavern is an odd place -- a historic inn with white tablecloths and lobster on the menu, but also a sports bar with "bucket of Bud" happy hours and a volleyball net out back. Some restaurants do a fine job straddling this line -- offering fine dining on one side and a more casual setting on the other. But North Star seems to have lost its way. -- Poor:]

Not too far from the chaos of Ocean City lies the gorgeous Rt. 54 also known as Lighthouse road. A few really great restaurants are set up right on the water and the Lobster Shanty is definitely a gem on the marsh. I had the pleasure of working at The Shanty last summer and besides having the best job at the restaurant of running the parking lot and working valet, which allowed me to relax and talk to patrons outside, I got to sample the food and have a few drinks there myself. The menu is frankly stacked.
