Wow, he's going too fast! and too slow! and he's a goddam liar! He probably doesn't count the time he stops to yell at old ladies and sell drugs to kids.

You can figure out his commute distance from his description of the endpoints in his article, and Google Maps. I get about 5.5 miles. I could be wrong too. I was trying to cut the guy some slack by suggesting that my original estimate of his speed was probably on the high side.

People with that attitude love to be aggravated and get all self-righteous for a certain portion of every day. They're making a big statement (mostly to themselves) about how they're doing whatever, and the whole rest of the world is against them, and trying to kill them, and not following the laws, and purposely making their lives hard.
It's very difficult to argue someone out of that world view, and they're generally belligerent and unpleasant to be around. But dammit, they're RIGHT!
