***No, actually it really does make sense as "so new?" On that we do not agree.***

Right, we don't agree on that, but I understand and basically agree with everything else you wrote. As I recall, I also was not familiar with "so nu?" or "zo nu" as a Yiddish expression when I first heard "Sue Me" from GUYS AND DOLLS, so I guess I just decided that Nathan meant "So what else is new?" -- the version of the phrase that I'm familiar with -- and Loesser had just shortened it. So I too thought that's what Nathan meant, as you did, it's just that we disagree that "so new?" makes sense in that shortened form :-)
