Year 7, Week 17 (May 7-13)

This was a week of endings, between the official end of the COVID public health emergency and the official end of Title 42 asylum policies at the border. (The way we’re headed, I also haven’t ruled out an end to the debt ceiling.) Needless to say, the NNR remains available for your snarky coverage needs.

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 amendment!–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:

I wasn’t quite sure where to stick the story below, but it does involved both Election and Rejection, so I figured this was the place for it. Here’s what has happened:

The main news story on the Biden Rebuilding front this week is immigration-related.  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 attention-seeking lamb 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 cloning technology; I’ll use it responsibly!
