    AP story so there is the link. Basically in a nut shell, the dude who was just executed apparently ordered a completely exhorbitant last meal, and then didn't touch a single bite of it. So some pissed off State Senator just squashed the entire program.

    Man... talk about the ultimate case of dicking everyone else over. I'd be beyond pissed if I were the next guy on the block. :D
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    What would you have?

    I'm thinking I'd have a dozen deep fried soft shell crabs, a couple of pieces of crisp scrapple, fried taro puff (dim sum), and some Dolle's caramel corn. I think cremation would be in order out of courtesy to the undertaker.

    The whole policy is mental. Give them nothing. This idiocy is on par with using a sterile needle to administer a fatal injection.

    I would have the Dilaudid platter.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    It's a last gesture of humanity in the face of death. Compared to the cost of keeping a condemned prisoner sitting around for years and litigating all his appeals, the cost of the meal is trivial. This ban is too much like the ChiCom practice of billing the next-of-kin for the cost of the bullet, inhuman Socialist bureaucracy carried to an extreme.
