I’m re-re-re-reading The Westing Game and I was thinking about the similarities between the book and Twin Peaks. These include a strange murder, weird suspects, odd puzzle-like clues with multiple interpretations, lots of restaurant scenes, fathers with secrets…
And then my eye hit this name: Sydelle Pulaski. (She’s the faux-invalid with the painted crutches, remember?)
Of course, that brought to mind the only other Pulaski I know of in pop culture: Ronette Pulaski, the first victim from Twin Peaks.
Notice that both first names are based on masculine names given a feminine ending.
More clues to come?
