Welcome to the first issue of Klipsun for 1995. Unfortunately for me, this happens to be my last issue as editor-in-chief, but hey, what an issue to go out on! Both the writing and editorial staffs worked hard to produce this magazine and I think the quality definitely represents their level of commitment.

Klipsun is reaching new levels. With the writing staff digging deep for excellent stories and the editors endlessly tapping their creative juices, the magazine is only get­ ting better. I can only dream of where it can go in the fu­ture. The capabilities are there somewhere within the dark recesses of College Hall. The cover story for this issue has been an amazing process for us. Haidee Jezek came to us with a story idea about Brian Basset, the mind and pen be­hind the nationally syndicated comic strip “Adam” and former political cartoonist for The Seattle Times. During the groundwork for the story, not only did he graciously agree to the interviews, he also agreed to produce an original piece of art to adorn the cover of Klipsun. We can’t begin to express our gratitude for his efforts. The cover art is incredible. This issue of Klipsun is full of great stories probing serious issues, shedding light on the dark mind of Trent Reznor and offering an alternative way to combat college stress. Again, I think you’ll find there’s something for everybody. As you read this, Klipsun is being served by a new editor, Ryan McMenamin. I wish him, and all of his staff, the best of luck with the challenge ahead. I know I’m going to miss it.
