1994 Mercury Cougar 6 cyl Automatic

I am unable to shut off my car unless I remove the coils and battery cable. This happened exactly one week ago yesterday. I was going somewhere and it started fine, and when I went to get out of the car, I turned the ignition off and took the keys out, and low and behold it was still running. The problem is no longer how do I shut the car off, but without taking it to a mechanic (cause they charge way to much), how do I know if its the switch, or the actual ignition that I need to replace? Again the car turns over fine, and can drive it, I know how to stop it, but how did I know which problem to look at?

It does sound like it is in the ignition switch.
