Is it just me, or does this seem just a bit ridiculous to anyone else out
there?  Do we really expect Lynch or Frost to *look up* all the Brandeis
alumni so that they can a have a true reference for the show (great as it
is)?  Besides, were this Diane person a real Alumni, wouldn't the old
disclaimer about "everyone in this show is fictional and similarities to
those alive or dead are coincidental" be broken, etc?

It just seems ludicrous to bother checking Brandeis's alumni records for
a charcter who is mentioned (in passing, no less) in a network TV show!

Otherwise, long live Twin Peaks!  Cooper forever!
