	I guess _Blue Velvet_ is out of the question then eh?

	This is yet another example of inaccurate criticism of Twin Peaks.
Maybe someday, someone in the media who has actually WATCHED the show will 
write something about TP.
	If you recall _the Economist_ article (from around Dec/Jan I think?)
on Twin Peaks, criticism was also drawn to things about the show that
were not true.  The author also commented on the inappropriateness of
selling copies of "Laura's secret cassette tapes."  (I, for one, would
like to get hold of these tapes.)
	It is interesting to note that _the Economist_ is also a 
*British* publication (I think).  Hmmm, ...

P.S.  If a British company picks up TP for us, I suspect that it
won't be what we're used to (better than nothing of course).  Maybe
it will become tame enough for an 8pm time slot and soar in the
ratings! (yeah, right)
