February 22, 1987, my worst nightmare

I flew from Dallas to New York to show work.
In Dallas my best friend took my car out to
get beer. About nine cars were totalled.
I was held responsible because I owned the car.
I hadn't given him permission to use it.
We never spoke again. Damages were at least
$ 750,000. To this day I don't know what
happened to the other drivers.
