    Nice to hear you out how Big Bad Jerry out-machoed the Hell's Angels,
    but I suspect you know very little about how they operated. And what
    happened to people to served on juries against them. I had a run-in with
    the two next door, who are probably still doing time for Murder One,
    and if I did what I felt and was almost ready to do at the time, I would
    still be dealing with it if I was still around. Did you ever tell an
    Angel he was a wimp in public?
