Number 1799: Black Angel...Black Widow...?
My second favorite line comes from our slinky heroine, Black Angel. While friendlies are pouring ipecac into food bins she says: “How I’d love to drop enough ground glass in with it to make a first-class stomach-ache!” Vengeful, isn’t she? I would not have ever bet against Black Angel. And I wonder what happened to her after the war. Did she get married? I'd worry if she was still thinking about ground glass. Used against a husband, she'd be renamed the Black Widow.
