Notes: Included in this issue are three letters from Oscar Zeta Acosta, one on his embarrassing fascination with light-skinned women, one on his troubles as an unpaid civil rights lawyer, and one on the trial of Catolicos Por La Paz—a group arrested for disturbing a Christmas Eve mass. Together they give an interesting glimpse of Acosta as a man and as an activist (and it's not always a pretty sight). JL Navarro and Raúl Salinas also contribute to this issue.
Con Safos was a Chicano literary and art magazine that lasted 8 issues in the early 1970s. Oscar Zeta Acosta was a Chicano lawyer immortalized in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas as Hunter S. Thompson's "Samoan" attorney. Acosta wrote two memoirs, The Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo and The Revolt of the Cockroach People. He disappeared in 1974.
