Year 6, Week 33 (August 28–September 3)


For yet another week, most of the news cycle features The Ongoing Espionage of Cool Ranch Mussolini. Though there were more court developments today on the special master matter–despite it being Labor Day–I’ve opted to keep the NNR on its ordinary schedule, simply because I doubt there’s an end in sight this week. We all have to come up for air sometime, y’all, and it might as well be now.

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 floor!–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 a quieter week on the Biden Rebuilding front, and most of it comes back to MAGA in some way.  Here’s what has happened:


Your New Normal:


The Bad:


The Good:


So that’s what I have for this week, and I think we can agree that it was more than enough. Nonetheless, for making it through, you deserve this hamster platformer 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 links to your favorite tunes!
