He was whittling it while he and Sheriff Truman were staking out
the Roadhouse.  What else can you do in a town where a yellow
light still means "slow down?"

Last night I watched the pilot episode again. The first
character we see is Josie Packard applying makeup while looking
in the mirror...her expression is definitely not that of
someone going through a morning routine.  She looks disturbed
and of course the device of having a character look in a mirror
implies introspection.  I think she knew the body was going to
be discovered.

An interesting twist at this point would be to have the
blood stains found at the abandoned railway car *not* match
the blood types of either Laura or Ronette.
