Ignition won't turn

So I went to the gym today and the car ran just fine. When I came back out to my car to go to work the ignition won't even turn. What could be the problem?

I have a 2002 gt. I tried moving the steering wheel at the same time, nothing. I tried pulling the negative cable for a few minutes to reset the computer, nothing. I don't know what else to do. Please help

Stick or Auto, if Auto I believe it will lock if it thinks it is not in park also!

Push down on all of the ignition coil plugs, if no luck, then smack the fuk out of the starter and get in line behind me to replace it.
Got mine for $157.00 OEM Ford.

Ok I think I figured out its the ignition itself. After googling the crap out of it. How hard is it, and how long could it take to switch that out?

ignition wont turn as in physically, the key wont turn? or you turn the key and nothing happens? on a manual, you have the ignition switch, the starter and the clutch pedal position sensor. If that sensor is bad, then the car thinks you arent pushing the clutch in before you start the car.

EDIT: Its called a Starter Safety switch, and its connected to the clutch pedal. i would first check the connection to it. Somehow your foot may have knocked it out. otherwise, check for corrosion. I havent heard of too many of these just dying out like that, but doesnt mean it cant happen.
