Have you tried milk cartons?

Somewhere Whitey Bulger is laughing his you know what off.

With Osama bin Laden gone to his 72 virgins, Bulger apparently has moved back up to the top spot on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List. And flummoxed G-Men, who have been looking for their former No. 1 snitch for 16 years without success, have decided on a new approach to get their Most Wanted Man.

Focus on his Most Wanted Woman, spending $50,000 in taxpayer dollars for commercials on Ellen and Live with Regis and Kelly and the Times Square neon jungle.

The feds think Catherine Greig, whose been on the lam with Whitey all these years, is an easier mark because she likes to get her hair done and teeth whitened. And they called a news conference to tell us:
“We are trying to reach a different audience that will produce new leads in the case," said FBI Supervisory Special Agent Richard Teahan, head of the task force that includes investigators from the State Police, the US Marshals Service, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction.

“We’re looking for people sitting in a hospital waiting for an appointment with a doctor where there are three or four [television] monitors on the wall, and they are watching these shows . . . or people who are in a beauty salon or barber shop," he said.
It's hard to imagine a bigger embarrassment for the vaunted crime stopping agency. The only thing harder to imagine is that this tactic will be any more successful. And it certainly doesn't impress the families of Bulger's victims.

Says William Christie, a New Hampshire attorney representing two families:
“I think from the family’s perspective, the FBI is looking for Whitey Bulger as hard as Pakistani intelligence was looking for [Osama] Bin Laden.’’
You think Seal Team Six is available?
