Year 6, Week 32 (August 21-27)


Have you noticed how a quiet week is always followed by a completely bananas week, news-wise? This week is no exception–there’s a lot going on (again), and many things are definitely still developing as I type this. But if you’re trying to follow, the NNR has your back. (Or at least, it has your news.)

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 special master!–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:

For yet another week, Election Rejection was an entire flying circus. Here’s what I have for you:


This was also something of a frenetic 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. Nonetheless, for making it through, you deserve this sleeping otter 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 interesting types of black tea!
