diesel therapy
 n.— «Hubbell plans to broaden his criticism and touch on his theory of “diesel therapy.” St. Pierre says Hubbell believes prosecutors pressure convicts to testify against bigger targets by keeping them from their families. How? Since families must apply for visits 30 days in advance, prisoners are moved in diesel buses to a new prison every 29 days or so, meaning they never see their kin.» —“Why Hubbell hates buses” by Paul Bedard et al. U.S. News & World Report Oct. 25, 1999.
