I know. Old news. And you've heard it before. But, hey, I just haveto repeat it.

From Marc Kaufman at the Washington Post:
Navy spokeswoman Lydia Robertson said Nowak will begin her new assignment on March 21, working with the Chief of Naval Air Training in Corpus Christi, Tex. Navy officials have said they will decide whether Nowak should face military charges after her criminal case runs its course.

The public dismissal of Nowak appears to be the first in the history of the astronaut corps, said space historian Roger D. Launius of the Smithsonian Institution. He said Nowak is also the first active-duty astronaut charged with a felony.
What will they have her doing at Corpus Christi, teaching stalking and the use of pepper spray? If so, I'm interested... although we ought to get someone else to teach the how-to-get-away-without-getting-arrested portion of the class.
