The Nation -- a magazine which some would say is sliiiiightly left of center --
wants us all to send this form letter:

-> Dear Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles,
->
-> I am urging you to recommend that Governor Rick Perry grant clemency
-> for Michael Moore who is scheduled to be executed on March 28, 2001.
-> I have serious concerns about the fairness and accuracy of death
-> penalty sentencing. As a member of the Executive Board of Clemency,
-> you have the power to steer the Governor away from the use of this
-> inhumane practice which has been outlawed in the vast majority of
-> the rest of the world. Although my sympathies are with the relatives
-> and friends of the victim, to execute Michael Moore would be a
-> miscarriage of justice.

Yeah, I mean, it's not his fault that the Bravo channel isn't bothering
to show reruns of the previous season of his show and, worse, has
scheduled new episodes to air at the same time as "South Park".

Nor should he be held accountable for using the pronunciation "Warshington"
while he makes fun of politicians. That in itself is not illegal.

But look on the bright side: Not only does Texas kill the most prisoners
of any state, they also try the hardest to make their Web site brag about it
in an entertaining way. For instance, there's a list of every final meal
eaten by every dead convict in Texas:

http://tdcj.state.tx.us/stat/finalmeals.htm

Looking at the most recent requests, at top of the list...

Dennis Dowthitt, executed Mar. 7, 2001 asked for:
=>
=> 1 dozen fried eggs (over easy), 1 loaf of bread, a bowl of salad dressing,
=> french fries, and milk (3 cartons)

Mmm, bread dunked in salad dressing. With a dozen eggs and three cartons
of milk. I think he was hoping that all the prison guards would die of
cholesterol poisoning just from handling his tray.

Adolph Hernandez, executed Feb. 8, 2001 asked for:
=>
=> Double meat cheeseburger (all the way with jalapenos), french fries,
=> ketchup, 3 enchiladas, 3 tacos, banana pudding (with real bananas),
=> 2 Dr. Peppers, 1 apple, and 1 Snicker bar

Don't you hate it when they execute you and don't even put real bananas
in your pudding?

Jack Clark, executed January 7th, asked for "Jar of polish pickles"
among other stuff. The day before, Daniel Hittle had requested
"Relish tray (green olives, cheese, pickles, celery)". On November 15, 2000,
Tony Chambers wanted "2 sliced pickles (whole)", the day after
Stacey Lawton requested nothing but "1 jar of dill pickles".
September 21, 1999, Richard Smith needed "one small bowl of pickles"
with his meal.

WHAT SORT OF INHUMANE TORTURE IS THE TEXAS PRISON SYSTEM SUBMITTING PEOPLE
TO WHICH CAUSES THEM TO CRAVE PICKLES?

(Tony Chambers DID request "1 pint of tin roof ice cream" with his pickles...)

A lot of them seem to like bananas, too... DON'T GO THERE!

-- K.

One guy even copied his last
mean from a guy who was executed
earlier in the year. If you're
ever executed, be sure to copyright
your last meal so you can
collect royalties!

And... NO LOBSTERS! Nobody said "I'll have forty lobsters and two
hundred slices of bacon, please". I know I would. I wouldn't eat
the lobsters but, I'd just play with them. Did I mention that I
want forty LIVE lobsters? They denied quite a few guys cigarettes.
WOULDN'T WANT THEM TO GET LUNG CANCER!! They might lawsuit the jail,
and end up owning it! And then they'd put the Warden in the electric
chair. HEY! How did they kill people in the olden days before they
invented electricity? STEAM-POWERED CHAIR?

I want to know what's the matter with this Jeffery Caldwell who
didn't want *anything*. Does he not like to take a long trip on
a full stomach? Or is it because everyone knows that the state
has to give you a final meal before your execution, so he thought
that if he didn't order anything they wouldn't be able to kill
him? I see he had a smart lawyer who already tried to get him
lost in the bureaucratic muck by spelling his first name wrong,
but that apparently didn't work.

I want to know what was so wrong with Henry Porter's T-Bone steak that no
one ordered another one for five years.

Some people order french fries. Others order french fries with ketchup.
Is the first group eating the french fries plain? Frank McFarland asked
that his cheese sticks be clean.

Also: bubble gum is not permitted under TDCJ regulations (which makes
sense for obvious reasons) so one can't even order candy cigarettes.

How concerned should I be that Dr. Pepper is the preferred beverage of
death row convicts?

Beable will now post the tale of MikeO's last meal and execution.

I want to know what is a "cheeseburger (all the way)"? I can't
think of any logical meaning for it, so I'm just guessing that
it's something like a "cheeseburger with the lot". You USAians
sure do talk funny.

> Beable will now post the tale of MikeO's last meal and execution.

Oh stop teasing me! How can MikeO be dead? Surely the psychic shock
of his death scream would tear across the world, knocking over huge
cups of Dr. Pepper all over the world and causing all Taco Bells to
collapse and sink into the mud. I'm hoping he's still alive, eating
Taco Bell, and spilling PEP51, and that he suddenly turns up before
posting thousands of spillage articles.

One assumes old Buettner must have cheated the Reaper in Texas'
deathhouse and slipped off to Nebraska undetected. Notify the
authorities!

I wonder at McFarland's cheese-sticks preference. Is it normal
practice in Texas prison to pour the marinara sauce all over the
cheese sticks before serving? Here on the outside, we get the
sauce on the side for dipping purposes. Maybe McFarland didn't
want even the barest presence of ground-up tomatoes to ruin his
last day.

Hmm, looking over the records of these convicts, I actually
recognized one of them -- Betty Lou Beets, who had no last-meal
request. I recall the news reports of how she killed a couple
of her husbands and buried one of them under the decorative
wishing well in their yard. Hey, it beats paying alimony.

"All the way" doesn't seem to be the idiom in this part of USAia,
where people say "with everything" instead. Except if they also
want hot peppers, in which case they say "with everything and hots",
which I think is equivalent to the "all the way with jalapenos"
that many of the convicts want. (For some reason hot peppers aren't
considered part of "everything". What would be "everything" on a
cheeseburger -- mayo, lettuce, onions, ketchup, mustard, pickles,
tomatoes? Something like that?)

In some parts of USAia I believe the idiom is "all dressed",
although that may apply only to hot dogs, or as I once saw them
called on the Lawrence Welk show, "frankfurter sandwiches".

I'm a little upset over the fact that Orien Joiner's last meal sounds
like just the sort of thing that I'd like to have. This guy beats,
rapes and kills a couple of young women and he has the audacity to
share my taste in all-American comfort food? I think I'm going to be
ill.

Whoops, I just realized that he apparently wanted simple sticks
of cold cheese. When I see "cheese sticks" I immediately think
of the breaded deep-fried fingers of mozzarella! What the hell
is this guy's problem, wanting plain, uncooked cheese? Look,
the guy was obviously so nuts that the clerk who typed in his
record put the paper in the typewriter sideways.

>A lot of them seem to like bananas, too... DON'T GO THERE!


This reminds me of an edifying & story that was once told
to me of a certain Mr. M_____, who was employed by the Lackawanna
Rail-road as a train conductor. It appears that one day Mr. M_____
was performing his duties, which consisted largely of collecting
fares and punching tickets with care in the presence of the
passengers, when he encountered an ill-tempered and poorly-behaved
young man who refused to pay.

Actually the young man claimed he had no money, despite being
dressed in the foppish manner of Beau Brummel. He then proceeded
to berate Mr. M______ using all manner of base and un-pleasant
language, and then attempted to beat the unfortunate man with his
cane. Mr. M______, incensed at this mis-treatment, and perhaps
acting in self-defense, struggled with the rakish young man, and
in the struggle the man fell from the train and was killed.

Mr. M______ was tried, and due in part to the social status of
his assailant, was convicted and sentenced to be electrocuted
in the electric-chair. For his last meal he requested a banana,
saying he didn't want to be weighed-down with heavy food when
his soul departed his body.

A strange event occured, however, when the executioner pulled
the switch. Although the chair seemed to be working as it should,
the prisoner was unharmed. At that time the custom was to set
in-mates free following inexplicable failures in execution attempts.
Mr. M______ was even able to return to his rail-road job.

Within months, however, a similar event occured. This time the
unfortunate passenger was a priest who, when admonished by Mr.
M_______ that he could not not smoke his pipe in the dining-car,
began to create a scene in which he shoved a serving-woman, upsetting
a table of steam-dishes. Mr. M______, attempting to restrain the
man of the cloth, accidentally defenestrated him.

Overcome with remorse, he turned himself over to the authorities,
and on the basis of his prior conviction was sentenced to death
by electrocution. For his last meal he requested a banana, but
on this occasion after eating it he was washed thoroughly by the
prison-warden, who conjectured that perhaps residue from the
fruit had protected Mr. M_____ from the last attempt to lawfully
execute him.

Nonetheless, when the switch was thrown, the prisoner again
survived exposure to a current that should have ended his life.
On-lookers were amazed, and Mr. M______, again a free man, became
something of a celebrity owing to his amazing powers of survival.

Shortly more than a year had passed with Mr. M______ again taking
tickets on the Lackawanna Rail-road when, as if by fate, he was
involved in an altercation with an un-gentlemanly captain of
industry. The man in question, a certain Mr. R________, was in
his cups and was becoming quite amorous toward many of the female
passengers, causing quite a disturbance.

Mr. M______, in keeping with his official duties, attempted to
escort Mr. R_________ to his own room, but while they were passing
between cars, the industrialist lashed out at him, in the process
losing his balance and tumbling down to the track beneath the
train, where he was ground quickly into sausage.

Owing to the mysterious circumstances, the status of the decedent,
and the history of Mr. M______ himself, he was quickly convicted
and sentenced to death by electrocution. When he requested a
banana for his last meal, Mr. M______ was informed that, owing to
irregularities with the execution process, bananas were not allowed
to in-mates for several days prior to their electrocutions.

Mr. M______ elected to forgo a final meal, and was strapped into
the chair. To the shock of onlookers, if one might forgive the
pun, he was entirely unharmed by the machine aside from a slight
singeing of his hair.

Upon his release, he was accosted by a newspaper-man who asked
him to what he attributed his fantastic luck in thrice escaping
the electric-chair. Mr. M_____ thought for a moment and said
"I suppose I'm not a very good conductor".

Here in TX, "all the way" is indeed the common way of saying that you want
your hamburger/hot dog/BBQ beef covered potato/haggis/etc. covered with all
the fixins that the particular joint has on hand. This phrasing works in
all kinds of places and now I know that Beable is trolling (again) because
I've used the phrase at an Outback Steakhouse before to describe how I
wanted my potato prepared and the Australian lass that took my order
required no further explanation.
