5. Dougie and Identity: Speaking of sitcoms, meet Dougie Jones. Inasmuch as we can glean much about his previous life, he seems to have been kind of a sad sack: compulsive gambler, philandering husband, unspectacular pencil-pusher. In some respects you could graph Dougie as the apex of a triangle between Cooper and Bob. He was neither a man of integrity nor a force of radical evil. Dougie Jones, with his cookie cutter suburban home and midsized sedan, exemplified mediocrity. However, nothing is ever entirely normal or banal in David Lynch’s universe, particularly where the American petit-bourgeoisie are concerned. (See Blue Velvet and, of course, Twin Peaks .) There are some cracks in this façade that indicate that there is more to Dougie’s world than meets the eye. What’s with his lime green suit? Perhaps a visual shout-out to . Anderson and the electric blue get-up Adam Sandler wore in Punch-Drunk Love ? Dougie never changes his clothes, and he sticks out at his place of work, Lucky 7 Insurance, like a lettuce leaf. And Dougie’s perfect family? The oddly named Janey-E (Naomi Watts) and Sonny Jim (Pierce Gagnon) both seem willing to work with this new, obviously impaired Dougie, perhaps because – shades of Harrison Ford in Regarding Henry – this bumbling fool is a mite better than whatever Dougie was before.

Allegan County Undersheriff Frank Baker reported that the suspect was arrested Monday afternoon. The suspect is alleged to have shot a 37-year-old Kalamazoo area man shortly before 1:30 ., Monday, at Little John Lake county park on 113th Avenue, southwest of the City of Allegan.
The victim, who suffered non-life threatening injuries, went to Allegan General Hospital which then notified 911. The victim then was taken to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo for further treatment.
The shooting resulted from a disagreement between the victim and the suspect over the recent sale of a weapon, according to Baker.
