I quite agree.  I'd rather speculate that 20 years ago something 
happened in Twin Peaks that involved all the parents of all our 
"juveniles" -- Eileen and Doc Hayward, Ben Horne and his wife,  
perhaps James' mother (aha! that's why she "took to drink" -- 
couldn't stand the guilt); maybe Catherine Packard Martell and 
Pete Martell?  

Maybe there's some Deep Dark Secret that concerns something they 
did when they were about the ages of their own children, or some 
crime that they covered up.  Maybe it has something to do with 
the Evil in the woods.  Oh, and I'd bet that Margaret the Log 
Lady would have been involved, too. 

Bobby's parents were probably *not* involved, as it seems the 
Briggs are relatively new to Twin Peaks.  Or am I mistaken about 
that?  Has it ever been established how long they've been in 
town?
