Air Greenland went out on a sudden strike yesterday just two days before the last flight to the United States.

There is only one internet accessible computer at the hotel and a long line, so, long story short, no Iran News Round Ups for a little while until I can find my way back from Ilulissat.

Republican Mark Harris has a 905-vote lead ... Read More
