This is sort of last year's news, but I found it interesting.

I thought maybe 2020 would see the first calendar year with the same song at number 1 both the first chart week of the year and the last chart week of the year, but Taylor Swift's "Willow" bumped "All I Want For Christmas is You" out of the top spot for the week of Christmas. "All I Want" jumped back to number 1 for the first week of 2021, so having it happen this year is in play.

Technically incorrect. They are incorporated in New York, but their headquarters are in Virginia. They will be re-incorporating in Texas. Whether their operations will be moved to Texas as well is as yet undetermined.

The Bidens have two German shepherds: Champ & Major

Joe Biden's middle name was mentioned in the 2020 thread, but it does not hurt to bring it up for this year as well: Robinette

22-year-old poet Amanda Gorman reads "The Hill We Climb" at Biden's inauguration.

Given the impressive poetry and the amount of buzz it has generated, I'm expecting her name and/or the name of the poem to show up in a clue before long.
