Soooo ..... some scientists say the crabs are in trouble and others say they are doing well. Go figure.
interesting, did my best crabbing in Moriches creeks with duck farms in them back in the day.

I know when I was down in MD this past spring they were having huge problems with all of the debris being washed down the rivers and into the upper bay. The Susquehanna looked like you could walk across it on all of the debris.

Last time down I was told the locals call people like me, wader, macks and sandspinner the "Come heres".

Well, the Come Heres and the Been Heres
They don’t get along
I’ve been here fifteen minutes
I knew something was wrong
The waitress was not friendly
Neither was the cook
To ask how far it was
To the town of Stonybrook

The Come Heres live in cabins, the Been Heres live in Shacks
They say hello in passing
And talk behind each other’s backs
White collars vs red necks
Horses vs mules
City kids they come here and make the teachers look like fools

Come Heres come with Laptops, Nintendo, VCR’s
Some have their telephones, beside their foreign cars
They wanna make no smoking zones in all the public spaces
They want to pass ordinances outlawing turkey races

Well, the ancestors of Been Heres
They came here early on
When there were just the Indians, and once they’re gone
They claim themselves the New World
There’s lots to go around
Claimed bunch of properties
And built this little town

Now the Come Heres nearly have the votes to make their own mayor
In the last election they won half the council chairs
They took over the school board
They outlawed morning prayers, teach evolution, sex education, there

Been Heres do their drinking in their own saloons
In the Come Heres’ Microbrewery there’s a separate dining room
Been Heres shop Kmart and at Walmart, where they mix
They think of one another as Cavaliers? and Hicks

The Come Heres have the pussy cats and their little white French poodles
Been Heres have their hound dogs with names like Yankee Doodle
Comes Heres like to watch the ducks and some like to feed them
Been Heres like to shoot them and take them home and eat them

The Come Heres keep on coming
New ones everyday
They come for second chances
The new world as they say
They buy and sell these properties
For unheard of amounts
Come Heres keep on coming they’ll map this little town
The Come Heres and the Been Heres
To towns that overlap
You would not even see it
By just looking at the map
And alls there
At Christmas time when the tree is just the tree
And you could not tell whose kids were whose
Sitting there on Santa’s knee

The Come Heres and the Been Heres
There’s talk about a fence
The whole town is divided half for and half against
