Come & Gone

The National Hurricane Center stopped issuing advisories on Alberto at 4AM CDT and handed it off to the Weather Prediction Center. Heavy rains from the storm are still a flood risk for the Mid-South and the Midwest.

Roseanne Barr started the day as the star of a highly rated sitcom on ABC and then posted a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, an advisor to former President Obama. She, the rest of the cast, and the show’s crew are now unemployed. ABC, a division of ‘The Mouse’ [Disney], dropped the show as they viewed the Tweet as a violation of network standards. Ms Barr claimed the tweet was a joke.
