I.   I'm becoming a believer in the "twin cousin was killed, not Laura"
     theory. But a simple caveat: wouldn't the police check fingerprints 
     routinely in a murder investigation? Even given that everyone who
     saw the body and knew Laura said "Yep, that's Laura" (with more or
     less demonstrated emotion)?

II.  Minor continuity glitch. I watched this numerous times to be sure
     (love that VCR). At the Tibetan baseball game, when we first see
     the blackboard we can see the letters R and T below the "Nervous
     about meeting J" note. Agent Cooper flips the board to reveal the
     map of Tibet, and when he flips it back R and T are circled. They
     weren't before.
     
III. Where did Cooper get that map of Tibet? It looked like one of those
     old heavy oilcloth jobs that were used in schools in the 50's. It had
     no folds in it, so he wasn't packing it with him. Bet Cooper would
     have been hard-pressed to locate such a map in NYC, let alone in TP.
     (In concensus reality I bet that Lynch's minions were hard-pressed 
     too...)

Sometimes I get so flushed. Interesting. Do your palms ever itch?
