STS-117 Communicator in Jail

Of course Lisa Nowak is the big news of the day, especially in Houston and Cape Canaveral.

ABC News' Ned Potter points us to an ABC News story with more detail. He highlights this quote:
Friends and colleagues are baffled over the allegations. One astronaut told ABC News that the astronaut corps at the Johnson Space Center was "totally, totally stunned. Everyone is just stunned."
Right after that, on the same Page 2 is this:
Nowak is scheduled to be a capcom — capsule communicator — on the next space shuttle mission, STS 117, which is targeted for a March 15 launch date.

Given that this is a ground position, NASA should be able to replace her in the next 37 days.
