Revolutionary likeness
Re Sarah Ferguson's "An Inconvenient Death" [November 15–21]: I couldn't help but notice the striking similarities between the images of Brad Will after he was shot and those of Che Guevara, who was executed in Bolivia some 39 years to the month earlier. Like Guevara, Will was bearded, barefoot, and shirtless in the photographs. Both men had what has been called a "thousand-yard stare." The only difference between the two is that Guevara's body was surrounded by those who killed him, while Will was pictured with those who tried in vain to save his life.

Got beef?
Re Ben Westhoff's "Private Enemy" [November 8–14]: What an amazing article. It's the best thing I've read in quite a while. It takes guts to write this story, considering the popularity of Doom and the Mouse these days. I don't feel the need to take a side, nor do I feel your representation of Carey promotes the reader to do so. Like Joe Frazier when Ali beefed with him, Grimm really doesn't seem to need anyone's sympathy.
