Be grateful you have the option! (Ferry service from the American
continents would be somewhat impractical.);-)

True enough in terms of frequency, but I suspect Minnesotans and
Wisconsonians might take exception to that "somewhere remote"! :-)

Well, I only refer to FOX news as a last resort - I consider their
political emphasis a disgrace to an allegedly "free" country, so avoid
FOX in the interest of my blood pressure. I only looked there when
channel-surfing for news of the volcano, and NONE of the channels
available here had any news about the eruption when it happened. (I
speak of Wednesday, you evidently were monitoring things on Thursday -
evidently you have more time to watch TV than I do.)

Only via the Internet (and I think we foreigners must pay to subscribe).

"Didn't" is past tense;
The funeral is tomorrow (-:
"... other key leaders who planned to attend, including German
Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Obama, still faced possible
cancellations due to the ash. The White House said Obama was scheduled
to depart from Andrews Air Force Base late Saturday, but officials
were still monitoring the situation"
This begs the question as to whether "late Saturday" refers to local
time, which would mean they have quite a few hours yet to decide; And
besides, why not sneak around the back of the path of the dust unto
Russia and down to Poland?
