Last Meals

Last Meals

I was alerted to this fascinating but morbid archive on the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s website, listing death row inmate’s last meals. Some of them are compellingly excessive (Twelve beef ribs, three enchiladas, chicken fried steak with cream gravy, crisp bacon sandwich, ketchup, a loaf of bread, cobbler, three Cokes, three root beer, French fries, and onion rings), and some actually make your heart break a little (one cup of hot tea (from tea bags) and six chocolate chip cookies). Then of course you remember these people are all convicted rapists and murderers.
