Question: First off, happy new year, Michael! I share my birthday with Masi Oka, but I have no strange abilities or special gifts. However, you do: You have the power to make me feel better in a split second by confirming that Katee Sackhoff isn't getting killed off Battlestar Galactica.

Answer: My powers are apparently failing me, because all signs are pointing to Starbuck's imminent demise. In a radio interview with Portland's KUFO-FM last month, Katee all but confirmed that she's leaving the show later this season although she stopped short of saying Starbuck dies. If you ask me, this whole thing carries with it the stench of a highly coordinated foiler. I mean, Ron Moore would be out of his frakkin' mind to deep-six Starbuck, right?
