I can't put any of Henry's images on this post, but you can see them on his website.
I thought that the death penalty was wrong before I saw Henry's pictures. Now I'm sure of it. Sometimes it might seem like the only sensible solution, like a person is so maladapted they cannot turn around, but maybe that's just because we've not worked out how to help them yet.
Anyhow, most of the meals that get ordered as last meals for people on death row, don't actually get eaten. There's something about knowing you're going to get killed in the morning that diminishes a person's appetite. Also, quite often, people order way too much food. And who would begrudge them that?
Well, actually, the state of Texas.

I am hoping that my last meal is mushed up and fed to me by a kindly carer, but if I should happen to end up on death row (through some horrible miscarriage of justice naturally), and I wasn't in Texas, then what would I want?
I'm thinking spanokopita with a really nice fresh salad (no tomatoes), and a millionaires cheesecake for desert. I'd like caffeine free diet coke on the side of that please.
What would you have?
