I just got the Twin Peaks sound track the other day, and I got to
thinking about the signpost (Welcome to Twin Peaks...Population xx,xxx).
I started looking through the old episodes, and found that the population
figure has been slowly dropping for a long time.  Every time someone
has been killed in Peaks, the signpost has been appropriately decremented,
and it has been incremented the few times we've had people come back
(Andrew, Catherine). This really came to my attention due to the extreme
decrease in the figure last week, between the first and third commercial
breaks.  Anyone have any ideas as to where those 300 people went?
