Year 6, Week 38 (October 2-8)

Well, the news is still terrible, but at least it’s also Fat Bear Week until tomorrow, and look at all these good bears going for gold! (Honestly, no shade if you want to pause here and go vote for your favorite; we all need to take news breaks now and then.)

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 ballot measure!–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!

I’m clearing some space in Election Rejection this week to begin discussing Election Day, which at this point is only a month away. Here’s what I have for you:

On the Biden Rebuilding front, there’s a lot going on, though some of it was shunted to the Good.  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 party blep 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 warm socks because it’s getting cold!
