Table for Two, Execution-Style

Two inmates were executed in two different states today; Lee Taylor in Texas and Eddie Duvall Powell in Alabama.  Powell---obviously unclear on the last meal process---requested nothing special and merely snacked on sandwiches and corn chips bought from a vending machine.  Taylor made a better choice by ordering pizza, soft tacos, fried Jalapeno sticks, French fries, fried okra, and ice cream---although I still question the wisdom of combining a heavy, greasy, spicy side dish like fried Jalapenos with a sticky-sweet dairy dessert like ice cream.  After all, who wants a prison riot in their stomach when they're trying to get comfortable on the lethal injection table?
