User ALJDJDD is back and is engaging in what appears to be a revert war regarding "the horse thing." This sucks. Coding errors are being left behind as well, because ALJDJDD is not an experienced Wikipedian. 

Normally i would request semi-protection, but that seems cruel. I really am at a loss. I feel a sort of despair here. I really don't know what to do ... except "DO NO HARM." 

So i am going to walk away from the article for a few hours, rather than revert again (or fix the code error). I am going to upload the deleted material here and also  [[http://luckymojo.com/druck-bio.html at my own web site]] in case ALJDJDD decides to delete it from the talk page as well.

In fact, says Burns, Druck personally taught him how to rig the wires to electrocute Henry the Hawk: how to slice an extension cord down the middle into two strands of wire; how to attach a pair of alligator clips to the bare end of each wire; and how to attach the clips to the horse—one to its ear, the other to its rectum. All he had to do then, says Burns, was plug the cord into a standard wall socket. And step back. }} {{citenews  last =Carr |first =Rebecca |title =Confessions of a Horse Killer: Fraud Figure Admits 20 'Hits' | date= 1994-09-01 | work=Chicago Sun-Times | url = http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives?p_product=CSTB&p_theme=cstb&p_action=search&p_maxdocs=200&p_topdoc=1&p_text_direct-0=0EB421D82EBCBEF4&p_field_direct-0=document_id&p_perpage=10&p_sort=YMD_date:D&s_trackval=GooglePM}}
