As Sheriff Mike Shaw was wont to say,

"Hold on there, partner!!"

Is this meant to imply that the title of that annoying song by Cat Stevens,

_Moon Shadow_

(unless it was

_Moon's Shadow_

of course)

wasn't mere noise that he'd simply pulled out of his ass?

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
