I always try to give you something to think about for the blog. Especially a mid-week blog.
James D. French was executed in Oklahoma in 1966. He had been sentenced to jail with a life sentence but couldn’t bear it. So, he wanted to commit suicide but was but was too afraid. He concocted a solution to his fear. He murdered his cellmate so that the state 0f Oklahoma would execute him.
Sure enough, he was convicted of murder and was sentenced to death. At his execution by electric chair, he was asked if he had any final words. His reply? How’s this for your headline… French Fries.
Steve Jobs’s sister claims that his last words were Oh Wow, Oh Wow, Oh Wow. Now, people wonder what he saw before he died.
Surgeon Joseph Henry Green was checking his own pulse as he lay dying. His last word… Stopped.
Poet Emily Dickinson was famous for phrases as “it is better to be the hammer than the anvil”. He last dying words… I must go in, for the fog is rising.
Inventor Thomas Edison awoke from a coma, opened his eyes and said these words before dying, It is very beautiful over there.
Something to think about for the blog… Last words.
And our source of wisdom in pic o’ day…
