Year 5, Week 44 (November 14-20)


This past week looks an awful lot like the previous week–a lot of back-and-forth; a lot of doubling down; a lot of mess. We did see progress in a few areas, but there was an awful lot of rough news to swallow as well. I recommend washing it down with ice cream.

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 guilty plea!–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:

There’s more Election Rejection to report this week, and it’s still all over the map.  Here’s what happened this week:


This was also a strange week for Biden Rebuilding news, as the reconciliation and infrastructure situation has had several twists and turns.  Here’s what I have for you:


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 this baby bear’s trip to Prague as well as 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 in the day!
