The Navy Doesn't Want Ex-Astronaut Lisa Nowak Either
Lisa Nowak: No longer in the Navy
The wheels of discipline apparetnly grind slower in the Navy then they do at NASA, but the USN has finally gotten around to getting rid of Lisa Nowak, the astronaut whose name will forever be linked in Google searches with the word "diaper."
The Navy announced that she has been forced out of the service and given an "other than honorable" discharge.
Juan Garcia, an assistant secretary of the Navy, said Nowak "demonstrated a complete disregard for the well-being of a fellow service member." Yeah, you could say that. On the other hand, she showed plenty of initiative with her Houston-to-Orlando trip.
"Captain Nowak's conduct fell well short of that expected of senior officers in our Navy," he said.

Nowak was fired by NASA but she agreed to a plea bargain that kept her from serving time for the felony burglary and misdemeanor battery.
She, as everyone knows, attacked a romantic rival. And there was something about diapers, we forget exactly what.
