It was twenty years ago today, at noon, two crazy friends of mine (Bob McCubbin and Rick Baish) ponied up, with me, to buy a failing magazine we all loved. We threw a lot of money at it trying to turn the boat. Both Bob and Rick bailed at the $250,000 mark (Bob ponied up an extra $75k before leaving) and then Kathy and I soldiered on alone and remortgaged our house to put in another $100,000. Then Carole Glenn put up money from her house to get another $40,000, and we somehow, someway managed to squeak by.
