Santa Barbara Magazine Summer Issue Out: A Secret Message?

By Leslie Westbrook   |   September 3, 2020

A reader called me to ask whether I knew why the summer issue of Santa Barbara Magazine with a wonderful, whimsical piece of cover art by Pedro de la Cruz included the number “45” on it? “Was the magazine promoting the re-election of our 45th president?” she pondered.

Nope, this is not some subliminal message: ‘tis the celebration of the 45th anniversary issue of the publication (full disclosure: I contributed for some 30 years to the mag).

Happy anniversary, SB Mag!
