Year 6, Week 28 (July 24-30)

It was a quieter week this week, but it feels a bit like the calm before a much larger storm–and of course, the literal large storms in parts of the country don’t help dissipate the sense of dread. I’m hoping that things stay relatively quiet for at least a bit longer, but even if they don’t, I’ll be here to tell you about it.

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 recession!–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 are no more public hearings, but the Election Rejection front still had plenty going on. Here’s what I have for you:

This was a week of relatively ominous quiet for the Biden Rebuilding section, though we did get some news that’s not great.  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 roman numeral joke 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 more hours in the day!
