Tracking Santa

I have the kids sitting here, wide-eyed. Finally remembered before Christmas that NORAD tracks Santa Claus for all to see, them being the government spooks that they are; even Santa Claus gets no privacy. But for the last half hour, the kids have run down to the computer every few minutes to see where ol' Saint Nick is. The 15 minutes between his visits to Vik, Iceland, and Shannon, Ireland, is just killing them.

Somehow, I like that the U.S. government is spending money like this. Kinda makes them a little less sinister, though my five-year-old insists that the fighter jets in this video are actually trying to shoot Santa Claus down. I don't know where he gets his ideas.
