  With the end of Crusade and the great reduction in the volume of
  posts by JMS, I have decided the time has come to discontinue
  production of the Digest. I will continue to collect and repost any
  JMS traffic through at least the end of September, but unless SciFi
  (or somebody) picks up Crusade and the message volume increases the
  Digest will end no later than the end of this year. What a ride it
  has been!

Really? I've got three B5 keychains in stock, all purchased through
Diamond Comic Distributors within the last two years.

One is all pewter, has the B5 logo on the front and an etched drawing
of the station on the back, accompanied by the words "Earth's Last,
Best Hope". It comes attached to a bit of cardboard bearing the B5 logo
and a shot of the station floating in space. At the bottom is a logo
reading "Creation Entertainment" and a copyright notice: "Babylon 5 TM
& C 1998 Warner Bros."

The other two are pewter with some sort of color appliqu‚ on the
front. One is the Sigma Squadron Insignia, the other the Centauri
Emperor Insignia. Each has the following imprinted on the back: "TM & C
1998 Warner Bros. Rawcliffe Authorized User Made in U.S.A."

If these are not legitimately licensed products, please let me know so
that I can remove them from sale and go scream at my Diamond rep.

      The B5 keychains are legit; the question was in regards to
Crusade keychains.
