    I gather jail time would be less painful?


    ORLANDO, Fla. - Former astronaut Lisa Nowak, accused of attacking a romantic rival, asked a judge Friday to let her remove her electronic monitoring ankle bracelet, saying that it cuts her ankle and gets in the way of her military boot laces.

    Nowak promised to abide by all court orders if the GPS monitoring device is removed, including not having any contact with Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman, the woman she is accused of pepper spraying in an airport parking lot.

    Shipman's attorney fought the request.

    On the witness stand, Shipman told the judge she is still afraid of Nowak.

    "When I'm home alone and there's nobody there with me, it is a comfort," she said of the Nowak's monitoring bracelet. She also acknowledged, however, that she had visited her boyfriend in Nowak's hometown of Houston several times since Nowak's arrest. She didn't say if that boyfriend was the same shuttle pilot.

    On the other hand, Army boots and an ankle bracelet is a good look.

    I still prefer Lindsey's bikini and monitoring bracelet look.

    The judge's response to Ms Nowak should have been, "Well, you could mix in a salad now and again. Or go to a Tang only diet."

    I though that this thread might be about boots' old girlfriend taking him to "People's Court."

    It would be worth it just to see the smirk on Doug Llewellan's face.

    I'm surprised you did not go with a rancourous off-colour remark. Way to keep things centred, Flasher.

    We're not in Britain. It's honor in this country. Hizzonor is some part of New York still, as I understand it.
