How upset is Jane Pratt over the demise of the magazine that bore her name? Maybe not as much as you'd expect.

"It doesn't feel like the magazine I launched is shutting down," says Pratt, who now hosts a show for Sirius Satellite Radio. "For quite a while, and increasingly so, I've looked at the magazine as something very separate from me and from what I started out to do. There were still glimmers of things I started out to do. And I'm not saying what I was doing was necessarily better, but it definitely changed quite a bit. I'm sad for the people there, for sure."

Might she be feeling just a touch of schadenfreude, considering the way she was, let us say, eased out (Pratt has always insisted it was entirely her choice to leave, other accounts notwithstanding) and, implicitly, blamed for the magazine's failure to prosper up to that point?
