2010 NORAD Santa Tracker

Visit the official 2010 NORAD Santa Tracker.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - It will probably be several hours before Santa makes it to Framingham, or even to the New England coast.

Luckily with the help of NORAD, (The North American Aerospace Defense Command), you can track Santa's progress and see him fly in and out of suburban cities, country towns and rural villages as he makes his way around the world for Christmas 2010.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - After months of planning, casting, rehearsing and finally performing the play -- "The Laramie Project" closed after its second sellout night at Framingham High School.

I didn't see the play. I'll admit to never going to a play unless my kid was in it. What I did see and hear were an incredible amount of civil rights "in action" and discussed and debated in the schools and on the streets of Framingham.

The photo of Matthew Shepard on this page is so nobody forgets that the The Laramie Project is about a murder. A 21 year old kid was killed by two cowards.  The murderers attempted to use the fact that Matthew Shepard was gay as an excuse for how their planned robbery went very wrong.

The killers were Meth-heads.  They were too lazy to work for a living. The robbery was all about "getting money for drugs".  They singled out ...[read more]
