So Jane Pratt is stepping down as editor in chief of Jane. Before founding Jane, Pratt was the editor of a certain influential magazine that inspired cultish devotion in people like Daniel Radosh and Erin Edmison. I didn’t really become aware of the cult of Sassy until after the magazine’s unfortunate takeover by corporate goons. But I do own one issue from Sassy‘s prime—and the cover is an all-time classic, so I’ll post it here:

Sassy, April 1992

This issue was given to me a few years ago by Mary Schmidtberger, who, as I’ve said before, is the coolest and funniest person ever.
