I considered whether or not to reply for fear that I would have "found the enemy, and he is me" to badly misquote Pogo, but I re-read my post to see how it matched up to your response. Shoot, I'm getting creaky as it is, maybe it came out different than I meant it to.
After careful consideration (well, as objective as I'm ever going to be on my own posts, at least), I decided that you missed my point. The Earth did not stand still. No "biggie" as my great nephew would say.
