Damn, time moves so quickly — 20 years ago this week, my life was changed forever for the better by a small band of brothers, and sisters, united in a new and untested adventure called XS Magazine. Stephen Wissink, Janine Sieja, Robb Montgomery, Colleen Dougher. You quickly brought me into your world, and gave my muse meaning and purpose. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
There are way too many stories to tell, and adventures to share, but getting Canada to stage a protest and leverage high-level diplomatic sources to object to our Annual French Canadian Tourist Calendar was certainly a highlight. Thanks to the internet (which hardly existed when we launched the publication in 1991), you can read the press release by the local French Canadian South Florida newspaper here.
