Front and center: Why is

Front and center
: Why is Sheriff Charles Moose still the point man and spokesman in the hunt for the sicko sniper attacking Washington?

The slime has struck in multiple states. Isn’t this now a federal issue?

Shouldn’t the head of FBI be standing out there in front of the cameras? Shouldn’t he be leading the hunt? Shouldn’t his boss, Ashcroft, be bringing his forces to bear to stop the man or men who are stopping the capital of the world’s last superpower dead in its tracks?

Why aren’t they? Because they know they will mess up this investigation just as they have their fruitless hunt for terrorists and anthrax killers.

They’re just as happy to let Moose take the heat.
