When did driving become a sign of a disturbed individual?

The WaPo has an editorial up bout Bruce Ivins, the alleged anthrax killer. It describes him as a "deeply disturbed man with bizarre habits, including a proclivity for false identities and inexplicably long drives to nowhere." I don't do much driving anymore, but I used to go out "just driving around" when I wanted some time to think, and I still know people who do this (maybe not so much with gas prices the way they are). How are "long drives", even those without apparent purpose, supposed to be indicative of a disturbed individual? *Confused*


well, you know... those freaks that get out there on the ROAD to use a MOTOR VEHICLE to move themselves from one place to another must have a screw loose. Didn't you know you're supposed to just sit at home and go NOWHERE!!! SHIT!
Exactly. What the hell?
Maybe something weird like that. I haven't been following the case that closely, but here is the editorial I was talking about.
It's one of the only things they can pin on the guy. It's this or admitting a mistake again, one that may have drove him to kill himself.
As I saw on Countdown just now, how is it this guy had a decades long record of mental disturbance and the government sent him to work in one of the nation's most secret germ warfare laboratory. Don't they check for that kind of thing?
God, I hope not. We need the nation's top crazies in there making germ dispersal apparatuses.
Have you applied yet? They won't write me back.
Did you write in Oolox? They only have translators that read Oolox.
My advisor always said to take that, and I didn't listen!
