I saw this, and wondered if maybe Butch knows this guy?

-----------------------------------------------
HOUSTON - A Texas death row inmate with a history of mental problems pulled out his only good eye and told authorities he ate it.

Andre Thomas, 25, was arrested for the fatal stabbings of his estranged wife, their young son and her 13-month-old daughter in March 2004. Their hearts also had been ripped out. He was convicted and condemned for the infant's death.

While in the Grayson County Jail in Sherman, Thomas plucked out his right eye before his trial later in 2004. A judge subsequently ruled he was competent to stand trial.

A death-row officer at the Polunsky Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice found Thomas in his cell with blood on his face and took him to the infirmary.

"Thomas said he pulled out his eye and subsequently ingested it," agency spokesman Jason Clark said Friday.

Well, it's cheaper that way, what with the appeals process and expert witnesses and analysis and such. As long as he stays sealed in his sta-fresh container and can't go walking about, I'll be satisfied. :)

I tend to think of anyone younger than me as a kid, and I don't like to see kids get executed. Also, this guy is clearly insane, and belongs in a hospital, not on death row. I doubt they can do much to actually help him in the hospital, but they can try.
