Year 5, Week 9 (March 14-20)

This past week was a rough reminder that racial equity still has so far to go in this country. I’ll do my best to summarize, though I’m certainly not the voice to uplift on these issues, and I’ll also include links to ways you can help. I’m here if anyone needs anything.

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:

We continue to get updates on Election Rejection, and I’m legitimately mad that I have a new story for you on this. Here’s what I have for you:

We are continuing to track stories on the Biden Rebuilding fronts as well.  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 rougher than we’ve had in a while. For making it through, you deserve this kitten discovering its other paws 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 more coffee because we’re almost out!
