Year 6, Week 25 (July 3-9)

It has been a relatively quiet week since the last roundup–July is a slow time in the news field too, it would appear. That said, don’t get too used to the lull; we’re definitely still gearing up for some chaotic news weeks ahead.

Standard standing reminders still apply: I guess after six years I’m conceding that I’m a journalist, but I summarize news within my areas of expertise. NNR summaries often contain some detailed analysis that’s outside my expertise–I’m a lawyer, not a subpoena!–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:

We’re still in a relatively quiet period for January 6 proceedings and the Election Rejection front. Here’s what I have for you:

There’s a little bit more going on with the Biden Rebuilding section.  Here’s what has happened:

Your New Normal:

The Bad:

The Good:

So that’s what I have for this week, and I’m relieved it isn’t worse. For making it through, you deserve this guy’s urban rescue ranch humor and a more functional 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 cooler weather because heat waves are the worst!
