A bit more on the poster boy

spiritof76 has a great post on the insidious Che, not much to add, just to quote:

Well sorry, Ms Ziff, but that's what Che is these days - a commodity. An overrated icon worn by pseudo-revolutionary fantasists who think a photogenic image and a cool story about motorbikes constitute his record, squeegeed clean of all that tasteless "shooting people in the face" stuff.

Maybe one personal pet peeve: I like this image of Che better than the ones in spirit's post:

However, the background sucks (in my opinion), and I have not been able to get a better one. Any contribution of a better image will be appreciated.
