Nobody has as yet posted this (near as I can tell) but doesn't it seem
somewhat more than coincidental that

 - The main industry in Twin Peaks is the sawmill,

 - Logging interests in the Real World are busily cutting down huge old trees,

 - The main impediment to mass logging of huge old-growth trees is (surprise)
   the Northern Spotted Owl?

Maybe Killer Bob is really an owl spirit sent to punish humans for mindless
destruction of their only viable habitat.  The fingernail-letters "T" and "R"
were meant to eventually spell out "TREES".  If Bob's been around ever since
Leland's youth then maybe there are lots of letters stuck under fingernails
all around the state...

LET'S GET THE LYRICS RIGHT DEP'T:

One-armed man: "... One chants out between two worlds ``FIRE WALK WITH ME'' ..."
			^^^^^^^^^^

"Mairzy Doats":

	"Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy,
	 a kid'll eat ivy too, wouldn't you?"

	   ^^^  referring to a baby goat of course.  
		No word on llama dietary preferences.

You're welcome.
