	Introduction of the Norwegians makes me wonder if somone
	from Minnesota will pop up.

	A possible connection is that one of my cousins is married
	to Scott Frost, brother of the show's coproducer, and they
	moved from Minnesota to L.A. so that he could work on Twin
	Peaks.  Our family roots are Norwegian and English.

	Another odd personal coincidence was that we saw the pilot
	and 1st episode while in Snowbird, Utah -- in a valley
	below a mountain named Twin Peaks.  Not that it looks much
	like the Seattle "Twin Peaks" area, where I lived in the '50's...
