If you can't handle a situation like that, you shouldn't be driving. As I
said, she probably had it in "Sport" and didn't bring it back through the
gate into Neutral. That's the only way the car wouldn't stop in neutral.
And she must have gotten it stopped SOMEHOW, since she was there to tell

oh, she's perjuring herself. i've seen this stuff many times - there's
a certain theatrical circus show to these things - and a cadre of
individuals that will show up and say the most blatantly untrue bullshit
in terms that make the average vaudevillian look like an amateur.
one case i saw, some dude showed up in a medial gown, with i.v. drips
taped to his arm testifying about some doctor saving his life. thing
was, this individual was shown not to be a patient of that doctor, nor
could he have been at the facility concerned. it was just theater
designed for show and to help sway a decision. i guess there's
out-of-work actors that need money /real/ bad.

Like the time Mike J Fox didn't take his medication for two or three days
so his Parkinson's would be more pronounced.

Thus ended Hachi's all-too-short smart streak. Fox wanted to show
what Parkinson's was like, and even when he was on full dosages, such
as when acting, he couldn't completely cover up the involuntary
movements. Stop listening to your hero Rush Limbaugh.

Hey, I know that. I really don't blame him, and I thought it was awful of
Rush to poke at him that way.
I understand Fox did it to show the full effect of the disease. My step
father had it, and by the time they drugged him up enough to stop the
trmoring, he was completely out of it.
Mike has my best wishes for sure. It is a horrible disease. But I knew
why he did what he did, in order to get his point across. And believe me,
it worked for me.
I may be a Conservative, but I DO have a HEART, ya know!
