Kinder, Gentler?

Pawn was watching the evening news tonight and the story was last night’s stay of execution issued by a divided panel of the US Supremem Court in the case of a convicted killer in Mississippi.  Anyway, while the anchor and judicial circuit reporter coversed about the import of the decision, and the ramifications vis-a-vis the 11 other currently scheduled executons (8 now on hold) a series of file photos of execution chambers were shown.  Each and every one has a gurney to which the condemned is strapped, and each of those gurneys had a pillow on it.

This begs the question, who fluffs that pillow?
