At long last! The March issue you’ve all been waiting for. (You’d better have been waiting. Don’t make us come over there.)

This time,we tried to go easy on you. No stories about illegal narcotics, no stories about god or AIDS or the JWE. (Okay, we did let a grisly story about railroad crossing deaths slip through the cracks.)

Our cover story is a big, happy profile of a local ’zine publisher. You may be wondering why you never see this man's face in our pages. “Karlos the Jackal”, as our colorful source prefers to be called, doesn’t want to draw attention to himself. He doesn’t want to see you come into the video store where he works, point, and shout, “Hey! You’re that ’zine guy! I saw you in Klipsun. Zines are so cool, man! ” That’s not what Throwrug, or most zines, are about. Jesse Hamilton’s story points out that Karl & co. don’t print Throwrug for us, they print it for themselves. We hope Karl will be happy with the story, but we doubt that will happen. After all, we're spotlighting a figure in the community who would rather remain in shadow. But don’t fret, Karl. Our bulb is only 3,400 copies bright.
