Year 6, Week 14 (April 17-23)


The news is kind of a wild ride this week, which is better than being a trash fire I suppose. Still, traffic would be much smoother if everybody would stay in their lane. Just sayin’.

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 Twitter!–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:

This was Quite a Week on the Election Rejection front.  Here’s what I have for you:


In contrast, it was much quieter week on the Biden Rebuilding front.  Here’s what has happened:


Your New Normal:


The Bad:


The Good:

  • Recent French Resilience. This isn’t even American news, but it is good news, so here we are: President Emmanuel Macron beat alt right trash fire Marine Le Pen in the 2022 French Presidential election this week. Le Pen had been amassing an uncomfortable amount of support, so this victory was definitely not a given even though it was expected. At any rate, France will be spared their own Orange Cheeto reign for another election cycle, and good for them.

So that’s what I have for this week, and I’m sorry, there are no news refunds. For making it through, you deserve otter barrel rolls 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!
