Okay, I like Google and YouTube as much as the next guy in line, but I have a little beef this holiday season...

Every Christmas, I have enjoyed the Norad Santa Tracker on http://www.noradsanta.org/ For years, it has been a nice homespun series of animated movies with real military folks telling us where Santa is over the course of 24 hours. This year, much to my horror, the entire thing has been outsourced to Google Earth and YouTube!!!!!!! If we Americans can spend a million dollars to make a missile to blow up a donkey in a tent in Iraq, can't we continue to fund this great project that has gone on for so many years to the delight of families everywhere? I don't mind outsourcing at all, but this seems to rip the guts out of a grand american military tradition. Producing and broadcasting directly to the children.

My other less important, but still annoying beef is that Queen Elizabeth II is broadcasting her annual Christmas Greeting on YouTube this year. That just seems somehow strange to me. The Monarch of a 1000 year old Empire having her own YouTube "Royal" channel? This just seems wrong in so many ways......

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
