Both of these yield about the same thing.  The first line becomes:

# shorewall show INPUT

Chain INPUT (policy DROP 0 packets, 0 bytes)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source     destination
 2357 9697K ACCEPT     all  --  lo     *

So it *is* for the local interface.  Thanks tons for the quick help, guys
