Fans of our book already know that Florida serves one of the finest last meals in the USA. Prison cooks make a special trip to the grocery store, and the condemned can order whatever they want with a generous $40 spending limit. That means steak, lobster, shrimp, gourmet side dishes, fancy desserts...
Then why in the world did Oba Chandler, executed today for the triple rape/murder of a mother and her two daughters, order nothing but two salami sandwiches and one peanut butter and jelly sandwich, all washed down with a simple cup of coffee?
Was he afflicted with bland taste buds? A limited imagination? Or did some part of the phrase "You can order anything you want" cause his decision-making process to trip, stumble, and fall like an overweight clown slipping on a banana peel?
Only Oba knows...and he's not talking anymore.
