It's not entirely clear why Walt has a completely different attitude about Walter Jr's driving style in the episode Half Measures, in which he basically says "as long it gets you from point A to point B" it's fine. Is he being more understanding of his son's disability or he just doesn't care as much anymore? Is this in some sense a "half measure" as well?

    It's a metaphor about how Walt ceases to care about the means, so long as the end is what he wants. It marks Walt's further turn away from the moral, straight laced person he was and his movement towards becoming Heisenburg as a person, rather than a persona. Someone else is welcome to flesh this out with evidence from the show. – Adonalsium Feb 7 at 20:32
