Year 6, Week 29 (July 31–August 6)


This was the rare week when everything exploded over the weekend; we’ve had major developments in three stories and counting since Saturday as I type this. (Most of them are even net positive, which is doubly rare!) I’m for sure doing a little dance in my seat, because this was a fun week to document and I have to take my wins where I find them. You’re all invited to my impromptu dance party–anybody from Kansas gets in free.

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 text!–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 an absolutely bananas week for Election Rejection news. Here’s what I have for you:


There’s a great deal to report on the Biden Rebuilding front, though some of it is captured under the New Normal.  Here’s what has happened:


Your New Normal:


The Bad:


The Good:


So that’s what I have for this week, and for once, it doesn’t feel like I kicked several puppies! Nonetheless, for making it through, you deserve this impressive Connect 4 game 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 photos of your dance moves!
