    HAPPY NEW YEAR from THE 25TH HOUR!

    * Eric Adams starts his first week on the job, witnessing an assault, making key appointments, and making gaffes.
    * Governor Hochul delivered her State of the State address, announcing plans for ambitious growth in the healthcare sector, a new rail line connecting Brooklyn and Queens, and her intentions for New Yorkers to enjoy their go-to cocktails, damnit!
    * Biden urged all Americans to get their vaccinations already, c'mon folks - and gave one of his most aggressive speeches yet panning former President Trump's role in the insurrection on its one year anniversary.
    * House Speaker Pelosi invited Biden to give his State of the Union on March 1st, the January 6th Commission plans to hold public hearings soon, and the Senate is now prioritizing voting rights over Biden's human infrastructure agenda.
    * The Supreme Court's conservative majority thinks the private sector vaccine mandate is overreaching, hearing oral arguments which included lawyers arguing from home because they have, you guessed it, COVID.
