Assume for a moment that you know a woman - or a man. And they are married, or perhaps involved with someone. They may or may not have children.
Throughout the course of their relationship, you've never been particularly fond of the partner. But, they seem happy and so you are happy for them. But with time, the relationship seems ... poisoned. And you learn in a round-about way that the partner is less than faithful. Or, doing things to significantly compromise the financial stability of the union.
If you were the woman - or man, would you want to know?
And if so - how would you want to be told?
Now, imagine for a moment that you are billionaire George Steinbrenner.
Would you dig up the length of the third baseline to find the Red Sox jersey, or would you just try to forget that it was there?
Yeah. Like he could ever forget.
