Until last week, honestly, I had never pondered the question. But apparently, both astronauts and lawyers are capable of separating the intelligence they used to achieve their coveted positions from the emotional need they have to find — and keep — that “special someone.”

Witness the sad story of Lisa Marie Nowak, a NASA astronaut charged last week with, among other things, attempted murder and attempted kidnapping after she confronted a woman she believed to be a rival for the affections of astronaut Bill Oefelein in the parking lot of the Orlando International Airport in Florida. Nowak, who was wearing a wig and a trench coat, allegedly also was packing a steel mallet, a folding knife and several feet of rubber tubing. Not your typical array of Valentine booty.
