Vladimir Mehul Baptiste imagined conversations with his family, according to his mother, banged on the walls of his home screaming, "What's wrong with me?" and sat in a rainstorm because he said it felt good. The man now accused of ramming a stolen truck into the WMAR television station had been hospitalized at psychiatric facilities in recent years, his mother said in an interview. She expressed concern her son was using marijuana. Baptiste was under outpatient care as recently as Monday - one day before police say he barricaded himself into the Towson offices of Channel 2 news.

An emotionally disturbed man drives a landscaping truck into the lobby of Baltimore TV station WMAR around noon and then spends the afternoon inside the building watching other TV outlets covering his five-hour standoff with police. Sounds like a media story to me. It sounds as if it could be the story of someone with a troubled mind literally trying to break his way into the bright, shiny world of television - and accomplishing it, for a few hours at least, through his act of violence.

A good day is when he ekes out just enough money to buy enough gas to get him to the next town - and that's assuming he doesn't run into an ice storm. So what would Alvarez consider to be a not-so-good day on the road?
