Heroines: Win some, lose some

Guess not everything comes back in re-entry.

If it wasn’t so sad and pathetic, and if she wasn’t the married mother of three children, astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak’s acting like she left her brains and sense in space might be amusing.  She dons a diaper so she can drive straight from Houston to Orlando. Why? To ready herself for space? But, no.

Nowak, armed with a BB gun and pepper spray, a new steel mallet, knife, rubber tubing and large garbage bags was on a mission whose flight plan was not NASA approved. She was going to wreak havoc on another woman, one who had shown interest in the same shuttle pilot. Their relationship, said Nowak,  “more than a working relationship but less than a romantic relationship.”

Hmm.  Might seem to some like they were already married.

Call me crazy, but wouldn’t you lose some self-respect points battling another woman while you’re wearing a diaper?

Speaking of self-respect,  there’s an eighty-year-old woman I’d bet on against Nowak any day. Diapers or no diapers.
