Most people would feel a little sad on the day of their execution. Moody, morose, or perhaps downright depressed. But not Jeffrey Ferguson, executed today by the state of Missouri. Ferguson, who earned his death penalty by raping and killing a teenager in 1989, was all smiles as he was strapped to the lethal injection table. The killer stuck out his tongue and made funny faces at his relatives, then said, "At this point in my life, I believe that I am the best man I've ever been."
Talk about not setting the bar very high.
For his last meal, Ferguson dined on barbecued ribs, French fries, and apple pie.
