Daggers in Bloom
Spanish Daggers in bloom, Mt. Baldy

Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half-truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal, we must see the need of having nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men to rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood.

Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)

“A directionless zine with a wide variety of poignant essays.”

"The former president's chief of staff is found out to conduct amatory phone conversations from the executive offices with a dazzling Walkyrie. Behind her sweet nothings, she is actually infiltrating the presidential quarters for yet another drug ring. It is said of this Mexican Mata Hari that, in self-defense, she sports a DAGGER in her garter."

--Carlos Fuentes, 1995

—Annie Proulx
