Year 6, Week 36 (September 18-24)

This was another week of oddly off-kilter news–there were a lot of stories that were surreal or seemed to have disingenuous reporting. That said, some of it was also hilarious, which I don’t get to say very often. So I suppose I’ll take 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 an economy!–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!

We appear to be watching an Election Rejection flying circus trifecta, and I suspect that may be how we roll for a while yet. At least some of it was hilarious. Here’s what I have for you:

On the Biden Rebuilding front, the name of the game this week is money.  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 these serenading pancakes 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!
