The Bookworm Beat 9/8/17 — the Hurricanes Are Normal edition

Hurricanes are normal, but Trump Derangement Syndrome obscures that fact. Of course, those subject to TDS are deranged in other ways as well. Just look…. Before I get to the meat of this post — or, because it’s a round-up, the various meats of this post — I want to
