Klipsun Magazine hasn't had an issue with a theme for several years, so this quarter the editors and I decided to have one.

Committing the entire magazine to one theme is a major decision. We wanted to have a theme that the writers would like. I wanted it to be broad enough to provide plenty of room for creativity.

We chose people as our subject, which sounds simple enough. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that just about everything could be included in the topic. That thought appealled to me the most.

The magazine would be focused, yet have a wide range of topics. The stories that came in were all I could ask for. The topics ranged from the abstract (political correctness and neighbor relations) to the literal (the interview with Coll-Peter Thrush).

Political correctness (PC) seems to be the hot issue of the day, with no one winning the argument. I see people arguing the concept of PC, and questioning whether it is a violation of free speech. Talking (not arguing) about it may allow people to come to some sort of resolution.

American society has come to a crossroads. It must come to grips with sexuality. I think the interview with Thrush discusses questions about homosexuality that most people don't know the answers to.
