Preflight preparations continue at the North Pole. Santa is shown below at a briefing last week with Col. Marcus Beyerle (left), 21st Dental Squadron commander, and Lt. Gen. J.M. Duval (left), Canadian Forces, Deputy Commander, North American Aerospace Defense Command, at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo. NORAD will track Santa tomorrow night as it has done every year since 1958. Google Maps & Earth got involved in 2007, and a marketing manager there explains how the software inadvertently tagged St. Nick as being in the USA, even though he was actually in….. Toronto. Oops.
