Year 7, Week 16 (April 30–May 6)

This week felt slow at its start, but it started churning out stories hard and fast by the time the weekend wrapped. I’m going to cover most of this week’s stories today, but there are a couple we’ll have to punt to next week–it’s that kind of cycle, apparently.

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 a strike!–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:

After a blessed week off, we’re back to Election Rejection news about January 6 and Cool Ranch Mussolini crimes. Here’s what has happened:

The main news stories on the Biden Rebuilding front this week are FDA and CDC updates.  Here’s what I have for you:

Your New Normal:

The Bad:

The Good:

So that’s what I have for you this week, and I’m sorry, there are no news refunds. For making it through, you deserve this cauliflower snack time 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!
