Jeff, it's possible to do _anything_ in Emacs without a mouse.  I use
Emacs in a Linux console where the mouse is non-functional, and I've
never felt handicapped because of it.

C-x k will kill a specific buffer, defaulting to the current one.

If you've got a few hundred buffers to kill at once, start with C-x C-b
`list-buffers' to, well, list your buffers, go that list (say, with C-x
o), and type d on each buffer you want rid of.  This will mark each such
with a big D.  Finally, type X, and they're all gone.  [If you type a d
in the wrong place, go back there and type u to rub it out.]
