"Who killed Laura Palmer?

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing, especially when you're trying to 
finger the murderer in Twin Peaks.  The more that is revealed, the less we
seem to know.

Just as Leo, Jacques and Ben began to emerge as Definite Suspects, along
came the sinister [sic] Bookhouse Boys, the inscrutably evil Joycely Packard
and the itinerant one-armed shoe salesman.

How to explain the recent visitation by the wide-eyed, dark-haired Maddy?
And what will Agent Cooper finally succumb to:  Audrey's charms, Deputy
Hawk's mystic mind-melds or huckleberry pie sugar-shock?

You tell us.

First, decipher the clues in tonight's penultimate episode.  Then, Friday, call
us between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. at (214) 977-8093 with the name of the killer.

Or, if you're getting flash-forward visions, as Laura's mother is, write the
final scene to the drama, complete with dialogue, and fax it to us at
(214) 977-8321.  (But keep it short, please; no more than 150 words.)

To be published, votes and/or scenarios must be in our office by 6 p.m.
Friday.  Results will appear next Wednesday, the day of the series' finale."
