Twenty years ago today, the new weekly edition of the Phoenix New Times featured a man named Rick Ross on its cover, and a byline that was printed there for the first time: "By Tony Ortega."

Yes, it's been 20 years to the day since our first cover story appeared, and that first story just happened to be about a man, Rick Ross, who was battling the Church of Scientology. (Inside, the clever headline on the piece, written by our editor Jeremy Voas, was "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlatans.")

Our story about Ross was also our first story about Scientology, and one that would lead us to others, and then others, and then, well, this is where we are today.
