What, no Marcus Aurelius? For shame. We'll have to knock ten points off your
grade for that one.

Seriously, the degree that the show can encourage discussion, and
dialogue, and the free exchange of ideas that point to the history of
literature and philosophy, I am a happy man. By all means, if it's useful, use
it. (As I understand it, this spring there is a class nominally in the
Philosophy of Babylon 5 at the University of Illinois at Urbana.)

And thank you...not just for the kind words, but for the open mind that
preceded them.
