Che Part One and Che Part Two are being presented together these days as a four-and-a-quarter-hour presentation about the rise and fall of the godfather of exportable revolution in the mid-20th century. The title and length suggest a biographical epic, but it's neither biographical nor epic. It's as if the director, Steven Soderbergh, wanted to take tissue samples of Ernesto "Che" Guevara's political life. Part One focuses on the Argentinian doctor joining Fidel Castro's Cuban revolutionary brigade in 1955 and rising to become Castro's right-hand man. Part Two centers on 1967, when he waged a futile and fatal attempt to stage a Marxist rebellion in Bolivia that would fan outward to all of Latin America.

Police have charged two suspects in the killing of a man in East Baltimore last month. Dominic Deschamps, 31, and Che McDowell, 23, were arrested in the Aug. 5 shooting of 46-year-old Bruce Paige, police said. At least one witness told police the two suspects ran up to Paige in the 500 block of N. Monroe St., Deschamps said "kill that [expletive]," and McDowell shot him in the head and torso, according to charging documents. Detectives found blood smears and damage to a black Nissan Sentra parked at the scene, and a trail of blood down the street and a blue baseball cap where Paige had collapsed, the documents said.

HOLLYWOOD -- Having played characters such as the Sundance Kid and Bob Woodward, Robert Redford knows what it's like to evoke real life on film. But nothing quite prepared him for the stomach-churning experience of screening The Motorcycle Diaries, the new film based on Che Guevara's youthful road trip across South America, for Guevara's widow, Aleida March, her family and Albert Granado, now 82, who was Guevara's companion on most of the trek. When Redford acquired the rights to Guevara's book about his journey of discovery long after the Cuban revolutionary's death, he promised Guevara's widow a first look at the finished movie.

A Baltimore Circuit Court jury decided that Harbor Hospital should pay almost $2.4 million to a Baltimore County couple for the wrongful death of one of the couple's triplets, who died about seven weeks after he was born. Che Allen Taylor, who was born Oct. 19, 1998, was suffocating in his mother's womb and should have been delivered days earlier, the baby's parents said in a lawsuit. The jury listened to seven days of testimony and deliberated for five hours Thursday night before awarding the sum. "I was so happy to know that other people looked at all the evidence and said, `This was not supposed to happen,'" said Che's mother, Tracy Crew-Taylor, 32, a corrections officer in Baltimore.

MIAMI -- In some circles, Ernesto "Che" Guevara may live, but in Target stores, he's history. Images of the Communist revolutionary figure - his ears donning an iPod-esque set of earphones and splashed on the latest CD cases - have been pulled from the shelves. "The stores don't have pictures of Osama bin Laden or Adolf Hitler," said Miguel Saavedra, founder of the anti-Castro group Vigilia Mambisa. "It's disrespectful to the Cuban community." Miami's Cuban exile community collectively gasped at the use of Fidel Castro's one-time right-hand man to sell music accessories, with community leaders saying Guevara was one of history's brutal mass murderers.

Now that even Madonna has played the part, former Argentine first lady Eva Peron no longer seems as unlikely a subject for a musical as she once did. In an important sense, however, Peron was always ideally suited to the stage. After all, she began her career as an actress. For their 1978 musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice chose to emphasize the actress' political performance -- Evita's rise, reign, near deification and fall. And they chose the ideal politically savvy director, Harold Prince.

Is it real history or only a docudrama, make-believe, TV moment? That's the question I kept asking myself during Fidel, an ambitious and spirited Showtime miniseries on the life of Cuban leader Fidel Castro. As entertainment, politics, mythmaking and culture, I was fascinated by this four-hour film. As history, though, it often felt like Swiss cheese, right down to the producers' disclaimer that they made up dialogue and characters for "dramatic purposes." Take the morning-after scene in government headquarters on Jan. 8, 1959, the day after Castro and his triumphant revolutionaries marched into Havana and took control of the country.
