Year 5, Week 7 (February 28–March 6)


The biggest news of the week technically hasn’t happened yet, which makes drafting interesting to say the least. Think of it as a holiday gift, along with that extra hour of sunlight we’re getting back on Sunday–sure, Monday will be extra sleep-deprived, but it’s also the Ides of March, so we’re getting off light. (See what I did there?)

Standard standing reminders still apply: I am no journalist, though I play one in your inbox or browser, so I’m mostly summarizing the news within my area of expertise. NNR summaries often contain some detailed analysis that’s outside my expertise–I’m a lawyer, not a stimulus payment!–but all offroad adventures are marked with an asterisk. And, of course, for the things that are within my lane, I’m offering context that shouldn’t be considered legal advice. Okay, I think that’s about it for the disclaimers.  Onward to the news!     

Cleanup in Aisle 45:

Another week, somehow yet another story about Election Rejection, even though half the country is sick to death of it by now. Here’s what I have for you:

We also saw a bit of movement on the Biden Rebuilding fronts.  Here’s what has happened in the past week:  

Your New Normal:

The Bad:

The Good:

So that’s what I have for this week, and it was a bit lighter than many weeks but I’m okay with that. For making it through, you deserve this bear family crossing the street and a more consistently improved government.  I’ll be back next week with more restructured and improved news, and I hope you will be back as well–but in the meantime, feel free to ping the National News Roundup ask box, which is there for your constructive comments.  Send me questions! Send me feedback! Send me sunglasses for sunny days!
