Interesting Times also calls my attention to this interesting piece of information: According to a recent Internet posting--and mind, this information comes secondhad several times removed--George W. Bush is a Babylon 5 fan.
[Bruce Boxleitener quoted Karl Rove as saying] "I just wanted to tell you that I'm a big science fiction fan, and that Babylon 5 is the best science fiction television series *ever*."
Then there's a pause, and he adds....
"And the President thinks so too."
In light of that fact, IT helpfully provides a link to an online article by B5 creator J. Michael Straczynski pointing out that he intended the events of his show as a warning that history can repeat itself.
