Truly a sad situation and very complex apparently. I had some serious "issues" with my ex but never wigged out this severely. The items in her car or whatever really seemed creepy. My bizarre imagination went all over the place with that report.

I wish I could cover the eyes and ears of the children. They will never be the same.

I'd like to hear some more about this "dreamboat" guy who's the root of all the trouble. Like, who was leading who on?

Talk about being spaced out.

I thought, as did Sizzlin, that they really put these guys through a deal of psychological examination prior to being chosen as astronauts.

When the computer goes dead and the only cab home is hundreds, or thousands, of miles away and some piece of space junk has just blown away an antenna or something, you need people out there who are able to keep their cool enough to function.

And pull it all together enough to figure out a solution and not reach for whatever space folks use as hankies to wipe away the tears.

Sounds to me like they NASA folks, or whoever chooses the astonauts, may need to look into the ways they test prospective candidiates.

This naval captain's career is clearly over. Just hope she gets the help she needs, because it seems she is going to need a lot of it.

Today somebody on the radio called it "Lust in Space."

This story keeps getting more and more unusual. She seems to have put quite a bit of thought into her plan.
