"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Maine does something for the workers at the World Trade Center site. They threw a lobster, beer and ice cream feast for them.

Marie Crocker of Portland showed up Saturday at a New York City restaurant with a bunch of Maine friends, 1,000 pounds of lobster, 1,000 pints of ice cream and 16 kegs of beer.

Sounds like a party, huh?

Crocker and company were putting on the second United Maine Lobster Feed, with food and drink donated by Maine businesses, to honor the fire, police and rescue personnel who worked at ground zero. "We had a corn-shucking party last night in the alley outside the restaurant," Crocker said by phone from Suspenders, the Manhattan eatery that was founded by four New York firefighters in 1978.
