J. Michael Straczynski launched a Twitter account yesterday to squiw fandom for a compelling reason. It seems like the month of the month might be the first day for JMS''''s "from-the-ground-up" reboot pilot for The CW. This year, Warner Bros. Television is also a major player in the decision-making, with one exception being Neil Gaiman (clearly taking a break from keeping supporters'' concerns about a second season and doing rewrites
