Watch Out, King Crab; There’s a King Lobster in Town

Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, sported some Maine pride Wednesday, tweeting a picture of himself with a group of students donning lobster hats.

Was this photo op a show of support for Maine’s lobster roll as it vies for the top spot in the Taste of America competition?

Not exactly.

 

King posed with a group of students who qualified for the the National History Day contest at the University of Maryland at College Park next week.  According to a King spokesperson, the students in the photo are from Bruce M. Whittier Middle School in Poland, Maine, and are some of the 59 students from Maine who will participate in the national contest.

The National History Day competition includes students from across the country who  advanced through local and state contests for the top history projects that address this year’s theme of “Rights and Responsibilities in History.”

So although King did not don his own lobster hat, perhaps he should keep it on hand in case Maine’s signature dish becomes the next Taste of America champion at next week’s 53rd Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game.

    The way I see it people need to take life into their own hands now days, you can do that by learning how to trade the markets. I’ve been learning to the website Bionic Traders they have excellent videos and I just got their deal they are running and I’m very happy with their course material. The instructor is a very knowledgeable trader. I’ve been doing really well so far and my goal is within one month to quit my job and I believe I can do it.
