Year 6, Week 15 (April 24-30)

Originally, I had written that reviewing the news this week feels slightly less like drinking bleach than average, if you staunchly ignore the Elon Musk twitter purchase discourse. (Which I plan to do yet again this week, on account of that deal is not yet closed and also he sucks.) But then Politico dropped a freaking leaked SCOTUS draft overturning Roe v. Wade at 8:37 at night, so apparently I spoke too soon on the bleach front.

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 grand jury!–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 were a number of updates on the Election Rejection front.  Here’s what I have for you:

This was also a bit of a weird week on the Biden Rebuilding front.  Here’s what has happened:

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 stealthy sea lion 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!
