diesel therapy
 n.— «With lower profile witnesses in lower profile cases, frankly, I wouldn’t put a little “diesel therapy,” as it’s called, past the prosecutors. But here, the almost comically excessive nature of the journey made is so ham-fisted, so blatant, and so unlikely to work on a proud, savvy short-termer like Fawell, prosecutors would have been idiots to order it up.» —“Fawell’s long journey a government gaffe” by Eric Zorn Chicago Tribune Oct. 18, 2005.
