From Christine Hauser and the New York Times:
A NASA astronaut who drove hundreds of miles to confront a romantic rival, wearing diapers on the journey so that she would not have to stop to use the restroom, appeared in court today after being arrested on attempted kidnapping and other charges.I love the diaper angle. I'm reminded of an episode of Law & Order where a woman stalked someone and wore diapers and a disguise. I wonder if the captain saw that episode, too.
From Michael Hedges and the Houston Chronicle:
All three members of the triangular relationship that has resulted in an attempted murder charge against Lisa Marie Nowak are military officers who could face consequences in their careers if facts emerge that document improper fraternizing or sexual behavior.What a day for Captain Nowak. I'll bet she's wishing she'd made some different choices in the last couple of days...
But for now, the Navy is content to let civilian authorities handle the case, a spokesman said today.
Nowak, as a Navy captain, outranked Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman, who Nowak said in an affidavit she confronted because she suspected her of a romantic relationship with Navy Cmdr. William Oefelein, an unmarried fellow astronaut.
