Less than 300 pages to go

Che was married twice. I even knew the second one was named Aleida March but possibly only because some friends have a cat named Aleida. The first one was named Hilda, but I can't remember her last name, and she doesn't count anyway because Che wasn't into her.

Jon Lee Anderson interviewed and obtained notes, diaries, etc., from March for A Revolutionary Life. And he moved his family to Cuba for a few years during his research. As I am barely past the revolution in the book, there hasn't been a lot about March as she is now, but it seems odd that Anderson can just talk to her and she's not under glass in the Museum of the Revolution.

Viva la RevoluciĆ³n! Or Bam. Either one works for me.

I met Bam right before he was on "Jackass" when I was interviewing skaters for a story. He was all, "I don't have a last name." I was all, "Stop being an asshole."

I really need to read more.

I do, too. I've been working on one book too long.

But I thought his first name was Viva?
