    Thanks bikerchic!

    I'm going to be back in the saddle again tonight. :D My LBS guy says I do need a new rear wheel, but he got it straight enough that it will roll and it's safe to ride.

    Good thing he was driving a Hertz car and it was insured. What a pain in the butt for you to have to go through all this. I'll bet you'll be so relieved when it's all finally resolved.
