From Bob Higgs: "The Associated Press reports:
Ivins was removed from his lab in Maryland by police on July 10 and temporarily hospitalized, according to court records, because it was feared that he was a danger to himself and others. But it was unclear whether he was still employed by the lab at the time of his death Tuesday.
That raises the question of whether Ivins still had his security clearance and, if so, how he kept it, given that his social worker said Ivins had been viewed as homicidal and sociopathic by his psychiatrist.
"But aren't these the very qualities the government wants in its mad scientists? Surely we've not forgotten Dr. Strangelove already?"
