Spin Control

A digitally enhanced Visit from Old St. Nick

Next Saturday the folks who spend 364 days of the year making sure that no foreign government sneaks anything over the North Pole, turns its attention to tracking the one example of “incoming” that everyone welcomes.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command will once again have its official Santa tracker and countdown clock available on Christmas Eve. It’s very handy for parents who can only take being asked “when will Santa be here” so many times. 

Spin Control will have the tracker embedded on the website on Dec. 24, because there’s not much political news on Christmas Eve, and even if there is, most folks probably don’t want to read it.
