Same thing happened to me on my way home from work last month. Pulling 
out of a light, the pedal went right down. Surprised the crap out of me 
and clutched my way to the apron of a Shell station across the street. 
Sat there cogitatin'how to deal with it for a bit.Broke in the same 
spot, right at the top of the linkage where it comes out of the sheath. 
Decided it wasn't worth toughing it out, so I called AAA for a tow, 
found out it would be a while, and decidedthat since Icouldn't driveit I 
couldn't be arrested for dui. Went into the Shell station for a six of 
Yeungling Lager and sat on the lawn next to it and waited for the tow. I 
was, after all, on my way home.
