National News Roundup: Truncated Holiday Special! (Part 2)


Hello, and welcome to 2018! Well okay, Day 2 of 2018. But so far so good! We made it through 2017, and hopefully this year will be better, and in the meantime enjoy this sampling of New Year News. Same format as last week: Brief bullets with the best, the worst, and the weirdest. It’s the latest in resolution crazes!

Standard standing reminders still apply, though: I am no journalist, though I play one in your inbox or browser, so I’m only summarizing the news within my area of expertise. This week’s news contains some detailed analysis that’s outside my expertise — I’m a lawyer, not an ambassador! — but all offroad adventures are marked with an asterisk. Okay, I think that’s about it for the disclaimers. Onward to the Special!

The Weirdest:

The Worst:

The Best:

And that’s the New Year News, folks! We go back to our regular routine next week, with the news coming out on again on Monday, January 9. Until then: Keep on keepin’ on.
