Very sad and disappointing that astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak drove 12 hours straight to Orlando International Airport just to attack the woman who is seeing the astronaut for whom she longs. She is in jail without bail now as the authorities consider her dangerous.
Normally astronauts go through very rigorous training and are expected to have high standards of physical as well as emotional strength. I know love is a powerful force, but I wonder what tipped Nowak's mind toward such violence.
Here is an article by a fellow blogger - jammiewearingfool:

And the article in the Orlando Sentinel:
Space shuttle astronaut arrested at OIA on attempted kidnapping, battery charges
