Yeah, B5. The star is getting dim...

The spinoffs and TV movies were for the most part horrible, but I think the universe has a lot of potential. Not sure if JMS would be interested or up to the job. He is not that old... 56, but still. Some bold casting decisions, good writing, a budget, and a studio that gives creative freedom to the team. Ok... nevermind...

I'd love to get to come to Finland some day and see some of the memorials and museums related to the Winter and Continuation Wars. Where would you suggest I go?

National Defense University has a military museum right in Helsinki Probably a good place to start.

There's a museum of military medicine in Lahti (about 45 minutes from Helsinki by train). I don't know how accessible that is to foreigners though since it's situated at the local barracks in Hennala.

Finland has a lot of museums per capita, so there are plenty of places to go if you really want go around. There are plenty of memorials around Finland. You could also visit some actual battle sites and fortifications along the border. It's not too far from Helsinki...

Some people carve careers, others chisel them.

Working...
