Marshall Gore: Fed But Not Dead

When is a last meal not a last meal? When dinner is served but the execution is cancelled. That's what happened to Marshall Gore, a two-time killer who was due to be executed by the state of Florida today. Instead of a stake in the heart, the viscous murderer got a steak on a plate; a rib-eye, that is, along with a frosty Coke. Gore had already eaten his last meal and was less than an hour away from execution when his lawyers won him a last-minute appeal. Oral arguments are scheduled for later this week, and the execution might still go forward as planned.
