Death Row Inmate Requests Pizza For The Homeless

According to this CNN Story, Philip Workman requested to have a pizza delivered to a homeless woman in Nashville, in lieu of his last meal. His request, however, was denied.

"We can get some special things for the inmate but the taxpayers don't really give us permission to donate to charity," Riverbend Maximum Security Institution spokeswoman Dorinda Carter said.

This is surely a noble request. It would have been a nice gesture, but you can also see that the prison is not in the wish-granting business.
