Maine shrimp a dollar a pound

W. Hodding Carter is attempting to live frugally, on $550 a month, apparently in Maine. What's he eating?
While most of the shrimp make their way to Maine supermarkets, well-connected fishmongers around the country, and the larders of sushi chefs everywhere to be served up as ama ebi (sweet shrimp), the rest find themselves alongside Maine’s highways and byways, selling for as little as $1 a pound, via Gourmet.

And now for the pressing question: Will Carter live without his beloved Washlet toilet?

Why oh why must every article about Maine begin with a discussion of "real" vs. "fake" Mainers, even those that have nothing whatsoever to do with the subject?

A trip up the coast this past weekend found them for even cheaper...60 to 80 cents a pound at all roadside vendors!
