Does Santa even know he's being tracked?

Or does this have something to do with the Panthers not putting their logo midfield like AK asked Santa for last christmas?

We have a special "Santa" Checklist ;)

Its really Cool for us because the News Station comes and films us at work "Tracking Santa"... Fun for the Kids ;)

And pORN sHOP-- There is no money wasted on this. Its a service you get for free ;)

It all started way back in the 50's when a newspaper ran an add about calling in to find out about Santa Clause and where he was.

Well the # was one digit off. Some kid called in and a Colonel at NORAD got the phone call. He couldnt dare not break the kids heart so he acted like Santa, gave him some "HO-HO-HO's" and wished him a Merry Christmas.

Later they kept getting a ton of calls, then the Colonel has his folks pretend to "track Santa" and give reports on where he was.

Thus was born "Santa Tracking" by NORAD.

Its really cool for us, we have a PC based system we use now. We have Santa "symbology" that shows up on our screen, and displays his current position.

Awesome stuff for the kids :D

I guess you would rather pay for a politician to have a gold seat on his pooter though..

I'd rather that money be spent by the people that actually earned it!

Sheesh, you sure are a Grinch tonight. I seen more wasteful spending than this when I was in. It is good public relationship.
