Little head vs Escort
Lundberg was working as a professional escort at a time, and agents say Kennedy solicited her services between eight and ten times from 2012 to May 2015.
If he had, perhaps he could have avoided a gigantic mistake by letting his little head overrule his big head. Men are supposed to stop letting that happen after the age of about 32 or so - it varies depending on the
Parenthetically, of course, he also could have avoided a possible felony conviction for theft and money laundering. So there is that to consider as well, obviously.
I have to admit, when I first read the headline - without looking into the details - I actually thought that Mr. Kennedy might be some sort of evil genius. It seemed to me as though he had managed to screw over his corporate overlords by screwing a whore and getting them to pay for it. That is fiendishly clever - if one can get away with it, which plainly he did not.
Then I read the details. And I realised just how sad and sordid the story really was.
You may be surprised to learn, therefore, that I do, sort of, sympathise with Mr. Kennedy - up to a point.
You see, he started paying a hooker for her services because he discovered a truth that many of us have had to learn the hard way as well: there are not many good women left, if any.
Speaking strictly for myself, I have to admit, there are plenty of days - especially recently - where I find myself thinking that there are none left. Not one woman out there who might be a good wife and mother, a life partner and a keeper of a good home.
That is a spirit-crushing, soul-deadening realisation. It destroys a man's sense of self-worth to think like that - to realise that, no matter how hard he tries, no matter how much effort he puts into self-improvement, no matter what he does to live up to the noble ideal of the strong and virtuous God-fearing man who is ready to take on the glorious burden of fatherhood and family, it is all for naught. There are no women left with whom he can share his life.
It is at that point that some men flee Western shores for more promising avenues elsewhere. This is all to the good; America's impending destruction cannot be more than a generation away, given that there really is not an "America" that we can recognise as a distinct and real nation.
Others, though, turn to prostitutes to deal with the pain and the loneliness. I understand this impulse, though I do not necessarily fully support it; I have no real personal issue with prostitution, because I see it as a necessary "pressure release valve", if you will, that provides consenting men with straightforward sexual access to consenting women and clears out all of the stupid deadwood involved in the dating process.
The problem for Mr. Kennedy and men like him is that he made the colossally stupid mistake of thinking that the plot of Pretty Woman actually has a hope in Hell of working out in real life.
There is a reason why Hollyweird sells such nonsensical fantasies to us in film, after all.
Gentlemen, let this be an abject lesson for us all: never, ever, under ANY circumstances, think about turning a whore - in this case, a literal whore with her own suitcase shop full of baggage - into a housewife.
It will only ever end in tears - and, in the case of Mr. Kennedy, possible jail time.
