Like the fundamentalist muslims he wants to destroy, Christian dominionist and US vice president Mike Pence can’t be alone with a woman who is not his wife, for religious reasons. Twitter reacts.

I’ve been listening to old U2 albums recently. Achtung baby, overplayed as it became, took me nearly 15 years to learn love again. I’m currently playing War for the first time in ages, and it’s sooo good – urgent, fiery, and yes, passionate. It’s so easy to make fun of Bono’s overblown persona these days that it tends to overshadow how fantastic a band U2 has been, how deserved their ascent to the top was. But time makes fools of all, I suppose.

There’s a great understanding that comes with age, of how loss and change isn’t the exception, it’s the rule, it’s the deal. So much of our culture is spent hiding from that fact. It doesn’t make it less painful to go through change or loss, but you’re able to let it permeate you. What we are doing as a society is that process of letting go of the armor. Not everyone can do it all at the same time. But it is a thing that allows us to experience life as it really is and not as we pretend it might be.
