Steven Smith's Sickening Smorgasbord

While every death row inmate is reprehensible in their own way, some qualify as the "worst of the worst." Even that category doesn't do justice to Steven Smith, however, who was executed by the state of Ohio this morning. Perhaps "worst of the worst of the worst" would be more accurate.

It seemed totally fitting, then, that a man who committed such a sickening crime would also order a stomach-churning last meal. Smith asked for a pizza with pepperoni, sausage, and ham, fried fish, chocolate ice cream, and Mountain Dew. On their own, each of these items is fine. But mix them all together in a stomach that's already churning from pre-execution stress, and you've got a serious case of nausea just waiting to happen.
