Opening Arguments

Road trip

"Daddy,  Daddy, stop the car. I have to go!"

"Hold it in, little girl. We're almost there."

"I can't!"

"Don't you want to grow up to be an astronaut?"

"Yes, Daddy; I'm sorry."

NEW YORK (AP) - Buzz Aldrin said a former astronaut charged with attempted kidnapping should be "admired" for allegedly avoiding stops when she traveled cross-country to confront a romantic rival, according to a published report. Lisa Nowak was arrested in February after police said the married mother of three had driven nearly 1,000 miles from Houston to Orlando, using diapers to avoid taking breaks.

"I think Nowak should be admired for traveling across the country at night and not getting out of her car to put in gas or go to the restroom," Aldrin said in an interview published on Time magazine's Web site. "It is not excusable, but it is understandable for an achiever to fall into a trap."

Sounds like Buzz was deprived of a liitle oxygen while in his space suit.
