2002 Ford Taurus Possible Ignition Switch Problem

I have a 2002 Ford Taurus. Pulled out of the grocery store
parking lot the other night, stopped at a stoplight, and when the light
turned green, accellerated away and the car died. Put it park and
recycled the ignition key, nothing, Cycled again and still nothing. I
waited a few minutes and tried again and it started. Drove it home and
parked it in the garage. Getting ready to go somewhere a couple of
days later, started the car and went back in the house. Came back 10
minutes later and the car had died. Cycled the ignition key several
times and finally got a connection and it started. I then shut it off
and I've not been able to start it since.
All accessories appear to work ok. When turning the key all
the way to engage the starter, nothing. Not even a click. Accessories
still have power, just doesn't seem like there's a connection in that
part of the switch system allowing power to run the starter. Battery
charge tested full.
My first thought would be the ignition solenoid (if that's
what you call it) on the column (plugs into the back of the key
housing) needs replacing, but with all the sensors on this car, I'm
afraid of something else being the fault and wasting my money. Do any
of you readers have experience with this kind of trouble on the Taurus?

You buy one of the worst pieces out there and want it to run like a Toyota?

Shame.
