    I believe it was Robert Peel that made the adaptation, who knew sailors were conking heads with them for centuries.

    My neighbor gave me a wood lathe when I was 16. I went to the hardware store and bought like 12 feet of curtain rod. I made quite a few of these lol. I would drill out the end with a spade bit and fill it with pennies, then plug the end with wood glue.

    Didn't one of the TV shows from the late 50s or early 60s open with an MP standing at his post twirling a baton? Just can't remember the name of the show -- must be getting old and having CRS begin to set in.

    Amen, those were true tools of the trade. The streets haven't gotten any safer yet the powers that be believe we need to do our job in a kinder gentler way.

    I remember a story my dad used to tell about his time in the army when he was stationed in England. He and a buddy got a little out of hand at the local pub and the police had to break things up. He was always amazed at how easy the English cop was able to subdue him and his friend (and my dad wasn't a small man) with his little wooden 'stick'. ;)
