Che and Bolivia

Here's something interesting from the NY Times: 'Che's Second Coming?' As you know, Che was captured and killed in Bolivia by government troops, with assistance from the CIA, back in 1967. He was there to get a revolution going, but wasn't able to get the local support he needed, at that time. It seems that he went to Bolivia 35 years too early; his efforts now appear to be coming to fruition.

Interestingly someone (i.e. http://biltheman.blogspot.com ) had a Che T-shirt on today (I guess he read your post).

I bought that same shirt, quite cheaply, at that place on Newbury.

It was interesting to me, that his efforts would have had such a large effect all these years later, seeing as how he had so many problems with his Bolivian campaign.

The standard Che picture is discussed in a wikipedia article, 'Che Guevara (photo)'.

This can't have effect in actual fact, that's exactly what I think.
