It's not just you. This has been hashed and rehashed since the series began
last April.

His name has never been given other than as "Dale Cooper". That his middle
initial is "B" is pure speculation.

Few people do. "Harry Truman", for instance, also has a Washington connection.
He was an old gaffer who refused to vacate his house when Mt. St. Helen's
barfed, and got buried in ash for his troubles.
