I will will state in closing you've shown nothing physically

objectionable with the statement that so intrigued you:

<<If Annie Oakly and Buffalo Bill are moving relatively on

equal horses and firing equal arms, a mid-point collision

If it doesn't fit in your universe then perhaps you are

describing a universe we have no access to.
