This should be my last post to alt.tv.twin-peaks since I'm unsubscribing --
the volume of posts is overwhelming! [Sorry to add to the clutter]
I just wanted to thank the people who took the time to submit the
interesting posts:

1) The revelation that Waldo Lydecker was the name of Laura's murderer
   in the movie _Laura_ starring Gene Tierney. I'm REAL ticked the 
   bird didn't do it.

2) The report that Senor Droolcup was in _The Searchers_ and gave a 
   similar speech there to the one he gave the fallen Cooper. I like 
   to think that the ghost of Natalie Wood haunts the set of TP.

3) The parallels between Streiber's _Communion_ and the owl imagery in
   Twin Peaks. Streiber sounds like that unique American type: the
   huckster/believer. A stand-in for David Lynch.

4) All the fantastic, laborious, intricate hallucinatory analyses. True
   net heroes. 

Finally, I'd like to suggest a destination for TP and I hope this will
sound as cracked as anything I've read here: bring Laura back. In TP
time, it will soon be Easter...and they didn't bury her deep enough!

Also -- if you aren't a lit type, take the time to read Robert Frost's
two great stories of the supernatural "The Witch of Coos" and "The Pauper
Witch of Grafton." I know...they're verse...poems....but if you read
those you might read his odd, genuinely horrifying "Directive." 

Thanks for the posts.
