In the December 1994 issue, on the "Hello" page, founding editor Tommi Lewis gave a heartfelt goodbye to readers that was also a Tear Jerker if you read in between the lines:
"Chief Tommi here with some news. D.A. is moving to New York. I can't go, but I'm sure the new guys have some mondo fun stuff planned for you. I hope wherever I end up, we'll find each other. Until then, I'm hiding in this magazine one last time. [...] Goodbye and ADVENTURE ON!"note Tommi later went on to edit TEEN Magazine in the latter half of The Nineties. At present, she occasionally blogs for The Daily Green from Good Housekeeping, as well as a Disney parenting blog. So, in a way, at least a few readers of DA in the early '90s did find Tommi again, and may continue to do so now that they have kids of their own.
