Throwback Thursday: Keep the Fire Burning

It’s Throwback Thursday: today’s edition is dedicated to  the cult classic TV show Twin Peaks by David Lynch and Mark Frost (1990-91).

Today’s that day.

If you’re not familiar, and I suppose most people are not, Twin Peaks was a weird, campy murder mystery soap opera set in the fictional Washington town of Twin Peaks. The plot is twisted, the characters eccentric and everyone eats at the Double R Diner where they serve the best cherry pie in the state. One of the campiest of the eccentric characters is the Log Lady, seen here at the Double R:

“You wear shiny objects on your chest. Are you proud?”

Is it just me or does the log lady remind anyone else of a vanilla version of Kamala Harris?

“Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels [to the KKK]?” - Harris, questioning Ronald D. Vitiello, acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during his confirmation hearing. 

You can’t see it but Kamala also carries a log. She used hers to whack Vitiello clean out of contention for the permanent job.

So welcome to Twin Peaks, a surrealistic world populated by nefarious characters and subplots where - you discover early-on who the evil perpetrator is - the drama just goes on and on.

We just want to keep the fire burning. One log at a time.
