It's possible that Bester would appear elsewhere, whether in a
TV movie or elsewhere, maybe even Crusade, we'll have to see.

Meaning I know but I ain't telling.

And I'm 43.

Funny story there...I had occasion to take a cab recently, and I
get in, and the driver is this Russian guy, medium-accent. He looks
back, and he says, "I am trying to decide which of us is older, you or
me." Jokingly, I suggest that it's probably me, and he says, "No, it
is probably me. I am 52. I am guessing you are...48."

"Actually, I'm 43," I said.

"FORTY THREE?!" he says...and damn near drives off the road.

I shrug. "I've had a hard life."

"Must be," he said, shaking his head.

{original post unavailable}

All my characters are in some way based on stuff I either see in
myself, or would like to see in myself were I a nobler and smarter
person.

{original post had no questions}

It would take a hell of a lot more than greying hair and
wrinkles to make me look respectable.

And yeah, the show has definitely aged me. I recently saw a
friend whom I haven't seen face to face since about year 1 of B5, and
the first words out of his mouth were "Jesus Christ what happened to
YOU?" (Thanks, great to see you, too....)
