Year 5, Week 20 (May 30–June 5)


I don’t even know what’s happening with the news anymore, y’all. It feels like everything is holding its breath, and I don’t know if that’s good or bad–did we just dive underwater, or are we going into anaphylactic shock? Your guess is as good as mine!

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 Joe Manchin!–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:

It’s not as mind-numbingly painful as it was last week, but Election Rejection news is still going strong. Here’s what I have for you this 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 these sad aliens 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 a better senator from West Virginia!
