Year 5, Week 15 (April 25–May 1)


Happy belated May Day, readers, whatever that term means to you! (To me, it is International Workers’ Day, but this year it was also a record number of other things, so don’t let me structure your experience.)

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 labor law!–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’re pretty light on Election Rejection stories this week, but we do have a Terrible State Du Semaine. Here’s what I have for you:


We also continue to track stories on the Biden Rebuilding fronts as well, which are a bit more varied than usual.  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 I’m sorry, there are no news refunds. For making it through, you deserve CIA Otter 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 hours of sleep!
