I couldn’t figure out why I was having so much trouble birthing this final update for the current issue until I realized, oh, hey — it’s the final installment of Issue 13, being posted on the 13th of April. I guess I was just taunting disaster with this one. Anyway! Unless I suffer a heart attack and die before I can click “Publish,” we’re past the rocky waters of our ill fortune. Our personally-tinged Pivotal Moments edition wraps with not two but three pieces. So read up. Next issue: something magical will happen.
