Former astronaut and adult-diaper wearer Lisa Nowak
(who had already been dismissed from NASA in 2007
after she drove from Houston to Orlando and pepper
sprayed a romantic rival) is finally being forced
to retire from the Navy with an “other than honorable”
discharge, more than 4 years after what was probably
an attempted kidnapping/murder, but at a minimum was
felony burglary of a car and misdemeanor battery.

Hey, can you imagine how crazy
that retirement party would be?
