Will Florida Execute John Ferguson, Paranoid Schizophrenic, Today?

As I type this, the latest news on Florida Death Row Inmate John Ferguson is that he has ordered, and may be eating right now, a last meal of a chicken sandwich and sweet tea

Or maybe that's already happened, and he's being prepared for execution.

The United States Supreme Court holds this man's life in his hands.  His attorneys have filed for stays of execution before the Highest Court in the Land after the U.S. District Court granted a stay of execution and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals lifted that stay.

Ferguson is set to die today. 

Ferguson is a diagnosed schizophrenic and has been known to be severely mentally ill for most of his lifetime.

Will a man who is mentally ill be executed today?  Highly likely - the Supreme Court has already turned down 2 of his 3 filings.
