The Venezuelan government ordered some schools to reopen and declared that the nation has "returned to complete normality" after the bloodiest riots in decades. Authorities, however, did not lift a night curfew in the capital or a state of martial law. The rioting, which began Feb. 27, was sparked by price increases under a government austerity plan. Meanwhile, the government revised the casualty toll, reporting 246 people killed--down from an earlier estimate of at least 300.

The Padres came home Monday, ready to make a statement. So they trotted out Bruce Hurst and his 12.60 earned-run average to the mound, figuring that, at the very least, things couldn't be as awful as Hurst's first Padre start. They weren't. Hurst answered with his first one-hitter, setting down the final 19 Atlanta batters in order, and Tony Gwynn, Carmelo Martinez and Garry Templeton each hit home runs to give the Padres a 5-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves and a healthy dose of optimism.

The first thing you notice are the alert, green eyes. Then the perfectly cleft chin, the almost cruelly sensual mouth, the hair that falls artfully back into place no matter how many times he musses it up for a photographer. "Last one!" the cameraman promises Édgar Ramírez, who's been patiently posing on a Mid-Wilshire office balcony for 20 minutes. Is this the face of a revolutionary, a terrorist, a wanton assassin, a brutal soldier of fortune? The face that launched 1,000 ammunition rounds in movies such as Tony Scott's "Domino," Paul Greengrass' "The Bourne Ultimatum" and "Che," by Steven Soderbergh?
