Year 5, Week 27 (July 18-24)


This was another week of monumental change on scant few topics, which seems like it’s becoming our new normal. It can feel a bit overwhelming to keep up with everything, but that’s why we’re still doing the NNR! I’m here if folks have any questions.

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 committee hearing!–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!

This week’s Election Rejection news is also Congressional news, which is why it’s mostly pettiness masking massive dysfunction. Here’s what I have for you this week:


There are also some developments for Biden Rebuilding. Here’s what has happened:


Your New Normal:


The Bad:


The Good:


So that’s what I have for this week, and despite being pretty focused, it was a lot! For making it through, you deserve this take on a classic riddle 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 improved air quality everywhere!
