North Pole Alert: SCN (Santa Claus News) is reporting that Donner has come down with an unknown malady. No word yet as to whether he will be able to make this year's journey or not. Most of Santa's regular reindeer have offspring that are eager to fill in if necessary. Santa reportedly said "It wouldn't be the same without Donner, but, if necessary, we'll get the job done without him."
