Duress, Economic and other forms.

Dear Saint Paul,
I certainly hope that Lynn’s beloved 6PK2GO hasn’t been chopped up. He values this car for its originality the same way he valued those original radios he loves to collect. You know the ones you put out in the rain so that you could point to them and say “See? Nothing but junk.” I imagine they’re in the Derry, NH land fill along with the ashes of Lynn Shackelford’s brother Dan. Nice show of respect there Paul.
Duress. This is a nice word. When it comes to me and what I write and my reputation I just remember the word defamation. I leave it to the lawyers to parse out libel or slander because it’s all defamation.
In your case the word is Duress: “In jurisprudence, duress or coercion refers to a situation whereby a person performs an act as a result of violence, threat or other pressure against the person.” I’m leaving all of the nice details to the lawyers Paul Doolittle of Derry, NH and your son Matt too because you two really crossed the line when you removed 6PK2GO from his possession and began threatening him. Well, Lynn has had his good knee replaced and thanks to the reduction in pain the he lives with his mind is clear for the first time in years.
When you, your son Matt, Jerry Sterling and Curt Smith, Lynn and I sat in the minister’s office at UUCM for yet another of your meetings I didn’t expect what unfolded. I thought you were gong to spring yet another plan on how you were going to help us. At no time did I expect the shout-fest that ensued as you and your support grou0pp began badgering Lynn to sign a bill of sale for his beloved Challenger. At the end it was your promise to Lynn that he’d never see his car again that forced Lynn’s hand to sign that damned bill of sale that you keep trotting out as proof that everything is above board. But Lynn didn’t take the money did he. No money no sale at that time and Mike Mancini already had posession of Lynn’s Challenger thanks to you and Matt. Or should I say Matt? I heard Jerry talking to his wife Dianah about what Matt had done when Jerry didn’t think I was around. I heard Jerry tell Dianah that Matt had told Michael Mancini that it was o-kay to take the car and now you and Paul were going top have to get Lynn ti sign a bill of sale or Matt would go to jail. You guys knew at the time what you were doing was wrong yet to this very day you’ll scream in my face that “Paul ne3eded the money!” Well what about us! You guys took everything we had because “Paul needed the money” and left us with nothing.

About Art

55 years old. By training, ability and experience I am a master toolmaker. My most recent projects include designing and building a process to grind a G rotor pump shaft with four diameters and holding all four diameters within plus or minus 4 microns of nominal. This was an automated process using two centerless grinders refitted to my specifications using automatic load and unload machines plus automatic feedback gauging. I also designed and built an inspection machine to check for the presence and size of a straight knurl on a hinge pin using a vision system for non-contact gauging.
