Year 5, Week 21 (June 6-12)


It took me a couple of days to realize why the news felt so weird to me this week, and eventually I put my finger on it–other than some failed shenanigans in Texas, there’s no state news about election rejection this week. That feels particularly jarring after so much coverage, and I don’t for a moment believe we’re out of those woods. But I guess maybe we found a clearing.

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:

As I mentioned above, there’s no election rejection news this week, but Biden Rebuilding news is all over the place. 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 think it was more than enough. For making it through, you deserve this fluffball 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!
