Year 7, Week 1 (January 15-21)

The NNR starts counting from Inauguration Weekend every year, which means that this trip round the sun, we happen to coincide with the East Asian cultural sphere’s Lunar New Year! Though it’s off to a tough start, I’m still hopeful that the Year of the Rabbit (or Year of the Cat, depending upon who you ask) will ultimately live up to its reputation. Rest assured that if it doesn’t, I will tell you about it.

Standard standing reminders still apply: I may be starting a seventh year of journalism, 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 committee!–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:

It was a bit of a disturbing week on the Election Rejection news front. Here’s what has happened:

Meanwhile in Biden Rebuilding, the scandal story continues to grow more heads.  Here’s what I have for you:

Your New Normal:

The Bad:

The Good:

So that’s all I have for this week, and I’m sorry, there are no news refunds. For making it through, you deserve this dramatic reenactment 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 tea blends!
