Or, maybe, just maybe, the gum that Cooper likes is really going to 
come back in style.  Knowing the way he likes cherry pie, donuts, 
etc., and knowing his personality, he'd probably be just about as happy
about the return of his gum as he would be to find out the identity of
Laura's killer.  Ecstatic, in both cases.  

Besides, as far as I know, Doublemint has never gone out of style.  We 
could make equally good cases for Beeman's (B-man = Ben Horne) and
Blackjack (another pointer to one-eyed Jack's).  Both of these are silly.
I'm perfectly willing to let it mean it like it is, like it sounds.

Just for grins:  On my deck of playing cards (Fox Lake - reversed colors)
the one-eye Jacks also only have one arm each.  The Jack of Hearts has
only a left arm, the Jack of Spades only a right.  Since I assume that
the club in question is probably based on the Jack of Hearts, it would
seem that the one-armed man has nothing to do with One-eyed Jack's.
Though he could have been the one to dig up the heart...with his
spade...oh, never mind.  Just another example to show how the over-analysis
can get really silly.  Fun, but silly.
