Money doesn’t seem to trouble Tim Gannon. Not today. But once upon a time, the Palm Beacher had $37 to his name.
It was 1988, and Gannon had exhausted his bank account after spending 12 years both cooking and managing in the New Orleans restaurant industry. Though he loved learning about food, he sometimes felt the industry was on top of him – at one of his restaurants, he even wrote a check from his personal bank account to cover his employees’ salaries for a week.

Not many city/regional magazines, at least in Florida, take on weighty political subjects. Most are content to feature pictures of wealthy people dancing for disease, and featuring the softer, less controversial aspects of the good life. We do a lot of the latter, but over the years (going back to 1965) we have also tried to do stories of general importance, which almost always meant a political angle.

Every Saturday morning, when I was about 10 years old, I watched the X-Men cartoons on TV. For 30 minutes a day I was lost in a world of superheroes and superpowers, powers like Professor Xavier’s telepathic abilities, Storm’s weather manipulation, or my favorite – Wolverine’s retractable claws, animal keen senses and healing powers. As an adult, when the movies were released one by one, I had a better understanding as to the source of their power: genetic mutation. These “mu- tants” possessed a genetic trait that elevated their human status into something supernatural. It was awesome.
