They held a parade for law enforcement (good) and Chief Moose (you have got to be kidding).

Santa Claus was scheduled to make his usual appearance at Montgomery County's annual holiday parade yesterday. But he seemed a minor attraction compared with the man whom children had really come to see. "Chief Moose! Chief Moose!" yelled 3-year-old Bryce Woodrell, as Montgomery's top law enforcement officer rolled by in a green Cadillac convertible. "Thank you for making us safe!"..

But somebody out there finally noticed the, shall we say, underdressed emperor. Criminoligist Susan Peisner on the Op-Ed pages Sunday:

Is it just me, or does anyone else out there think Montgomery County Police Chief Charles A. Moose and his vaunted task force bungled the sniper investigation?

It's not just you.

I've worked side by side with the police, training them on how to respond to domestic violence calls. I believe that, as a collective body, they are some of the smartest and most progressive folks you'll ever meet. But that doesn't mean I should keep quiet when I think the huzzahs and hurrahs in this case are woefully unearned.

When the clues were out there and were ignored, when solid, old-fashioned, shoe- leather sleuthing didn't happen, I have to ask: Why are we glorifying ineptitude?...
