Subject: RE: BS: Thanksgiving historical corrections (USA)
Not to argue anything, but a request for information:

Dam lobsters will be black by then unless I freeze them, ever eaten frozen lobster,

During the time I spent in the New England area, mid 1950s through early '60s, I was told by the locals that in most of the states there it was illegal to cook a dead lobster.

Since I do (rarely) find frozen lobster in the local markets, I must assume either that:

1. That law didn't apply everywhere, or

2. The reports I heard were mythical, or

3. The law(s) may have changed.

Anyody want to pick one, or suggest another choice?

(I haven't heard of anything similar for those other acquatic insects like shrimp or crawdads.)
