Musings of a Canadian Slacker

Friday, September 24, 2004
On campus, and around town lately, I've found that I see a lot of shirts and paraphenalia that displays the face of the late Argentinian Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Che , of course, was best known for his role in the Cuban revolution. Less well known for his murderous ways after the revolution. And who died trying to foment a Communist insurrection in Bolivia. Lately, especially amongst young hipsters, Che has acquired a certain cachet. I'm not exactly sure why this is...nostalgia for murderous Communists isn't my thing. Apparently it isn't Paul Berman's thing either. (Seen at Let it Bleed, via Damian)
