Thank you to all who responded.....for now, the fix was very simple.....a blown fuse of the wrong amperage.

Well, right after I sent out my question, I drove to a jobsite and it occurred to me that maybe I should check the fusebox, thinking that maybe the wiper will get power through the defroster somehow if the wiper fuse is blown.  Sure enough, there was a blown 15 amp fuse where a 20 amp should be, replaced the fuse with the proper 20 amp and viola', proper working rear wiper, defroster, etc.  This spring I will check out the rear wires, but the car only has 76K on it, so I would hope there has not been excessive wear in that area just yet.

Hope this helps someone else out there.  Thanks again for the numerous quick replies!

Keep it on the road......
