Year 6, Week 16 (May 1-7)


The news is actual nightmare fuel for another week, and the biggest stories are somehow getting worse, not better. I legit don’t know what to say here, except that it’s important to get the rest you need, because we’re going to be fighting these fights for a while yet. You have to keep putting the oxygen mask on the horse. Or something.

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 state bill!–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:

It wasn’t anyone’s main focus, but I do have updates on the Election Rejection front.  Here’s what I have for you:


Unsurprisingly, I don’t have a lot for you 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 clever horse 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 pictures of your pets!
