Humor is the best weapon or at least the least having the last word is. Christopher Scott Emmett lost his appeal to have death by lethal injection overruled on the grounds that it was unconstituional. Emmett was convicted of killing his co-worker (beating him to death with a brass lamp) to buy crack.
He was still cracking wise cracks to the end. "Tell the governor he just lost my vote". Too bad Emmett's couldn't deal with his problems with humor instead of crack and a lamp. And might I add "Bon Voyage"!
