Quoting an article in USA Today on 5/15, which talks about clothing
styles used on the show (and how they subtly provide hints on the real
personas of the TP characters), Sara Markowitz, Twin Peaks' costume designer
says of Jacoby's glasses:

	"That's so his analytical brain can look out through the rosy
	lens; his emotional side can look through the cool blue side."

She goes on further to talk about the earplugs: 

	"He wore earplugs off duty because he listens to people's 
	problems all day at work."

There was also a separate article on the prognosis of some current shows for
their chances of renewal. The USA Today tv critic listed Twin Peaks in
the "Winners" category (along with The Simpsons -but we all knew that), and
gave Twin Peaks a score of 9.5 out of 10 (with 10 meaning the highest chances
for a show being renewed).
