  If it was moi you're referring to, Phil's right.  Used a 4
ft. pipe on a breaker bar, snugged right up to the perp'.
110 lb. wife sat on it at 3 feet and jiggled a little (love
it when she does that).  I think it was Paul Heneghan who
got us all going (where are you Paul?).  No probs in that
area since (spring of 98? - good year) .  The thing that
triggers memories of that episode is 'drizzle.'  Travelling
on down that synapse I see a 'jiggle.'  Makes it all
worthwhile.  If there comes a times when it doesn't, I'm
going for ECT.
