Convicted OKC bomber loses diet fight



Awww, somebody needs some Metamucil.

Terry Nichols, the 54-year-old co-conspirator in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, asked authorities to whip him up something special for his meals inside Colorado's "Supermax" federal prison, the highest-security jail in the country, according to an article in the Tulsa World. Has someone been eating too much cheese?

Nichols apparently sought the court order because his poor, little tumbly wumbly has a hard time digesting all that nasty prison food during his life sentence. Maybe he should have thought of that before conspiring to destroy the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in 1995. And, this is just rich, Nichols also requested the special diet " specifically, raw veggies and other foods high in insoluble fiber " because of Christian beliefs.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Boyd Boland, being a big meany about the whole thing, denied Nichols request, noting that he is not facing "immediate and irreparable injury."
