Year 6, Week 37 (September 25–October 1)

To say that this was not a great week, news-wise, is pretty much like saying the Sahara is kind of arid. (While I pride myself on my dry delivery, that might be a bit much even for me.) It’s my hope that next week will be better–or, at the very least, that it won’t be worse. Either way, of course, I’ll keep people posted.

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 lawsuit!–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:

We’re still stuck in the Election Rejection flying circus trifecta, and it was much less funny this week. Here’s what I have for you:

On the Biden Rebuilding front, the name of the game is money for another week.  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 happy lab’s spa day 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 your favorite Tiktok videos!
