We've arrived at the end of another week, though many didn't. This was the week of Dorian who thankfully spared Puerto Rico and the South Florida coastline, but hit the Bahamas hard, decimating the islands of Abacos and Grand Bahama. Trump couldn't stop embarrassing himself by claiming that Alabama was in the cone of uncertainty (it wasn't).
