Oh don't take this so seriously.  You slipped up and said "that's what's
really there" which made this an arguement about mathematical aesthetics not
about filtering.

I was just pointing out that looking at it from a different mathmatical view
point you can "zero stuff" and get a filtered signal!

Anyway we all know all of the math you're going over.  All we're really
finding out is that you do you math based on a visual image of impulses -
well _I_ do my math based on a visual image of a continuous, bandlimited

I think your model is a bit odd - we are listening to bandlimited sound
after all, but if you can keep from making mistakes while thinking about
samples as discrete impulses, then you don't need any help to think like the
rest of us.
