It becomes clear.
Men should get a pamphlet upon entering their 40s about how not to be a complete idiot and ruin their lives. OTOH it may be as that comedian says, you can't fix stupid. Somehow this event reminds me of a local event at the opposite end of the social ladder. At our local public junior high school a few years back, the custodian encountered a small, suspicious package which appeared to be a bomb. He had just attended a meeting about such things, the gist of which was, whatever you do, if you think it might be a bomb, don't pick it up. So, of course, he picked it up. It blew off some of his fingers. Still, it's good advice. If you think it might blow up, don't touch it.
It should be pointed out that Mr. Hurd discovered a way to cheat on his wife and kids, and his company, and get caught doing it, and yet get nothing for it except a letter from the lawyer of his object of desire that I suppose must be taken as an emphatic, leave me alone. I mean, if you are going to go down, you should not go down like this. So rule one: Do not become obsessed with a minor film star even if she does look enticing on the cover of her movie "Intimate Obsessions" posing in some sort of leather bikini thing (which no doubt has some more technical name). But if you violate rule one, do not forget rule two: if the object of your obsession tells you to stop calling her, then stop calling her.
