The other new section deals with CHARITIES. While at Far Point this weekend, I learned about two charities that will tug at your heartstrings! One is supported by Peter Jurasik and he did one heck of a job this weekend raising money! A little baby is in need of a double transplant -- liver and intestines! Peter is putting a tremendous effort into supporting the National Transplant Assistance Fund. Their web site is at National Transplant Assistance Fund. More on this soon from Peter.
There are a LOT of other charities supported by the B5 Cast and others in the science fiction community -- like the Galaxy Ball on this page! I'll be gathering more information to place on the Charity page so that you can learn about what these wonderful people are doing to help those who are less fortunate.
Other Science Fiction News. If you have information about another science fiction program you watch you want to share, pass it along and it will be posted on this new page. It's a way of sharing your views, opinions about other programs you enjoy.

TRADING PARTNERS: Here's a suggestion for those of you in the US or abroad that find it's really hard to get your hands on Babylon 5 merchandise -- whether it's magazines or whatever. Why not find yourself a trading partner! For example, I have a great friend in the UK -- Mark -- who helps me with all the magazines published in the UK that feature B5 or Crusade! He sends me the magazines and in exchange, I send him things he can't get in England -- like the trading cards or the novels or the "Rising Stars" comic books! There are a lot of things that you can exchange -- and it's FUN too!
The lucky folks in Bellingham, WA will begin viewing Crusade on Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 9pm. It's available via Roger's Basic Cable out of Vancouver, Canada.
Channel Nine in Australia will begin showing "Crusade" on September 30.
Norway's TV2 has purchased the rights to Crusade. No air date has been announced.
Ranger Deiter reports that "Crusade" began airing in South Africa last week. That's wonderful. They have never seen Babylon 5, however, so it might be interesting to learn what they think of the series.

The Zocalo is a moderated mailing list -- which means that no one can post to the listing but me! Sorry about that -- that's why you receive an error when you try responding to a note regarding The Zocalo. It's one of the restrictions I've run into when using e-groups.com. It prevents responses from rippling through the group, but forces you to do a new e-mail message when you want to respond to a topic or send in information.
Thank you for your support. Be sure to bookmark this page so that you can return often to see if anything new has been added. The new buttons will help you move around the various parts of the newsletter. The subscription listing will be for reminders of things coming up -- and to highlight changes at The Zocalo. This is not the old Zocalo -- where everything was in the e-mail message delivered to you. That's what made it too long and prevented you from enjoying it more. The new version of the Z is short and to the point!
Take care and I look forward to hearing from you.
