Year 7, Week 12 (April 2-8)

The news this week is a pile of quasi-constitutional trash, and it’s bleak in a way I hoped we’d be past by now. Maybe it’s the lack of carbs talking, but this week’s stories really get under my skin. I demand a news refund.

Standard standing reminders still apply: I may be well into my 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 an injunction!–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:

There are a couple of different growing Biden Rebuilding stories, but this week we’re focusing on the one I think is most ripe.  Here’s what I have for you:

Your New Normal:

The Bad:

The Good:

So that’s all the news I have for this week, and I’m sorry, there are still no news refunds. For making it through, you deserve these unlikely buddies 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!
