I did not get my Spaghetti-O’s, I got spaghetti. I want the press to know this.-Thomas Grasso (Executed in Oklahoma)
Kenneth Lee Boyd, come on down, you are the next contestant on the “Capital Punishment Showâ€?. Kenneth, do I have a surprise for you. You are the 1,000th person to be executed in the U.S. since 1976! Rod, tell Kenneth what he as won. Kenneth, as lucky number 1,000 you will receive a free steak dinner from the NC Department of Corrections. Next you will spend 30 minutes on the finest gurney that money can buy. Now get ready, for the final prize, you will receive an injection of lethal drugs that will take you on a tropical vacation to Hell.
All it took for Mr. Boyd to become “Mr. 1000â€? was killing his wife and father-in-law in front of his own two children. You would think that it wouldn’t take as long as it did to execute someone after committing such heinous crimes. After all, it happened back in 1988. But good things come to those who wait. My elementary school teachers used to say that patience is a virtue and I believed them. Now I have proof that they are right. Can you believe that Mr. Boyd was ungrateful being the lucky man? He actually had the gall to say “I’m a person; not a statisticâ€?.
