Edward Abbey quotes Louisa May Alcott

According to his FOIA files which Edward Abbey requested from the FBI, and which the Moab Canyon County Zephyr is releasing serially, Abbey first came to the agency's attention as editor of the University of New Mexico's campus literary magazine The Thunderbird, when fellow students could not dissuade him from printing on its March 1951 cover:           "Man Will Never Be Free Until the Last King Is Strangled         With the Entrails of the Last Priest.     --LOUISA MAY ALCOTT" 5904

It turned out the Feds had planted the bomb with which they tried to discredit her, and kill her too. Judi recovered but died of cancer before she could hear a jury award 4.4 million dollars for the FBI's trying to rob her and the Earth First movement of their First Amendment voice. 3435
