told me about his honeymoon. They were driving down the freewway to San Diego when the new wife said "honey if i should die would ever remarry?" Being young and inexperienced he didn't know how to handle that handgrenade. So he answered. Later, in front of a Judge he tried to explain why he was weaving all over the free way trying to control the car and fend off an irate woman. The judge glared at the woman for a minute or so then turned to the man and said "I should probably grant you and anullment now and save you a divorce later. I should put you both in jail, you, young lady for assault and endangerment, and you, young man for stupidity." However much the fine wasit ended their honeymoon trip.
Paranoia does not preclude persecution.
