Santa gets added security

NORAD

Santa will have some extra security as he flies through the sky on Christmas Eve, in the form of a couple of military fighter jets.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command added the twist to this year’s animated tracking of Santa’s reindeer flight from the North Pole.

But, the addition isn’t sitting so well with some child advocates. They claim military jets have no place in the childhood fantasy. A spokesman for Norad says adding the jets was part of an effort to give the program a more “operational feel.”

The military has been telling children Santa’s whereabouts since the mid 1950′s.

    I beg to differ. Every time a child sees a jet aircraft of the United States overhead or depicted, he or she should know that it is there for no other purpose than to keep them safe. It is why we risk our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor as did our forebears. It is fitting that we would escort Santa Clause on his annual trek of peace. Should it offend you, so be it. Our mission is to make it safe for you to express your opinion now and for as long as the eagle soars and Old Glory waves.

    I saw Santa at Walmart. He was buying a razor. That cannot be good news.
