I Hurd Dat

One of thing that remains confusing in this whole Mark Hurd saga (the now semi-disgraced ex-chief of HP) is did he or didn't he?

He was accused of sexual harassment, which apparently didn't stick, but was fired for steering money towards a 50-year-old honey who used to appear in sexy movies. But both he and the gal claim nothing happened. Is Hurd lying or is he the quintessential high nerd who will do anything for the gal who's just out of reach? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com. With so many high-priced lawyers, we may never discover the truth.
