The Peekaboo Theory

letters dropped into mail slits

moving pictures seen through slits in zooetrope
slits in medieval castle walls for admittance of light and
discharging of arrows

guided missiles, long range weapons, battles fought at
greater distances with greater firepower, all without
putting a single American soldier on the ground
... and
among other things I'm unable to grasp how those words in
the paper and my words to you could possibly extend from the
same 26 characters
