Last meals

There used to be page issued by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, which, in a Texas-sized display of bad taste, revealed the final meal requests of the departments death row inmates. I found it here by foraging on the web.

Perhaps the saddest thing about it is the astericked line at the top which reads "The final meal requested may not reflect the actual final meal served." Just when you thought your life couldn't get any worse.

My fifty dollars says that 2 out of 3 men in my shul would ask for kugel and cholent with a single malt of some kind. Myself, I'd take steak, or meatloaf, and plenty of potatoes.
