*For all the crab lovers out there, this season’s for you!
The crabs are coming to a table near you and this season they might be a bit larger than last season.
But don’t get excited because while the Maryland Blue Crabs in the Chesapeake Bay will be larger from consuming too much carbon pollution, only their shell will be affected.
The factories, power plants, and vehicles that build the carbon pollution in the waterways is making a more faster growing, aggressive predator that is helping deplete the oysters.
*Cruising around the world has been a dream for many families for some time.
But as the cruise ship industry falters time and time again, cruising may be a dream voluntarily deferred.

They arrested the rapper for marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia, but then wanted to take a picture with him…which 2Chainz mentions on an Instagram photo.

*The victims of last week’s Aurora, Colorado, shooting at Century movie theater will never be forgotten and all of the families are experiencing immeasurable grief as we watch their misery from afar.
But, this tragedy could’ve occurred anywhere and security measures have been tightened because copy cats may spring up. It already seems that one man was going to attempt something similar at his job.
Neil Edwin Prescott, 28, of Crofton, Maryland, has been admitted to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Maryland, after he allegedly referred to himself as the “Joker” and said he wanted to “blow everybody up.”
So far, authorities believe that Prescott found out that (more…)
