Overcoming great difficulties

Normally, it's uplifting to hear how someone has overcome huge obstacles to do something seemingly impossible. I'm not, however, quite sure how to feel about a man who's learned to drive with no arms and one leg and then used his talent to lead police on a 120 mph chase and rack up one of the largest collections of traffic violations in his county. There's something to be said for a guy who can drive a stick shift like that in an age where many people can't even drive one with a full set of limbs.

I guess that goes to show that sometimes great talent doesn't go with great moral character. Sometimes great scumbags get great talent too. Kind of ties into what C.S. Lewis said in The Screwtape Letters - that great sinners need great virtues to be effective sinners.
