The consumption of animal meat is highly accepted in today’s society, however, the methods, in which the animals are killed are sometimes questioned for their cruelty. David Wallace, in considering the Lobster, takes the readers to the Maine Lobster Festival, where the consumption of lobsters is exploited, and the festival's attendees celebrate these acts.

Josh Hebert is inspiring to me because he worked in several restaurants and came to the realization that he loved the industry but couldn’t stand the daily grind. Coming to work and doing the same thing every day just wouldn’t do for him, so he decided to change it.
