Busboys at the Death Row Diner are now prepping a table for Jerry Jackson, scheduled to be executed in Virginia on August 18th. Because of Virginia's stingy last meal rules, Jackson will only be allowed to choose food items from the prison's rotating 28-day menu---although any meal Jackson gets will be better than he deserves.
Jackson was convicted of raping and murdering an 88-year-old woman, and during his confession he claimed that he "liked older women." Since Death Row inmates sometimes get TV privileges prior to their execution, I'd like to see the guards dangle a boxed set of Golden Girls DVDs in front of Jackson's nose and then snatch it away at the last minute. It would serve him right. Stay tuned for details about the final meal.
