    Of course, such things could not happen now. Standards of professionalism, and regulation, are much higher. The very idea is enough to make one smile. Lightening doesn't strike twice in the same place-so they say.

    Where do they come up with these ideas let alone the naming of them. 'Narcoanalysis' :p :rolleyes:
