Last Meal


I don't even know how I stumbled upon this, A list of death row inmates on The Texas Department of Criminal Justice website. The part that surprised me is the site actually shows what the inmates last meal request was, meaning if your name is on that list things didn't work out for ya. The selection is so large I really didn't have the time to look at them all, instead I just chose a few that caught my eye. What would you want to eat as your last meal ? I don't know If I would even have an appetite hours before my visit to the chair.
