'91 200Q hand brake sticking

The hand brake on my '91 200Q is not fully releasing.  I have noticed for a
few days that the lever has had 1" of play, but today after washing the car,
there was much more play and the brakes are dragging severely.  I am afraid
to drive the car for fear of wrecking the rear brakes, starting the car on
fire, etc.

Has anybody BTDT on this problem?  Car has the stock rear vented disks, 82K
miles and pads are about ready for replacement.

I honestly tried to search the archives, but kept getting the message that
'file does not exist' each time I tried to pull up a file.
