Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we cry and cry and cry and mix our tears with grenadine and put it in a ziploc bag and mail it to Selena Gomez so she can serve it to her enemies as a signature cocktail at her next Bachelor viewing party.
Winter, much like swiping through Tinder, feels like a practice in endurance and hopelessness. Despite your efforts to stay optimistic, to keep swiping right on life, it only gets harder and harder to find the will to go on. But one industrious Boston woman has found a way to make both Tinder and 2015's never-ending series of blizzards a little bit easier.
A new study finds that when a husband is seriously ill, there's zero increased risk for divorce. Lovely. But when wifey is the sick one, the marriage is more likely to end. If it's 1956, this absolutely makes sense! After all, who will care for her dear husband? Who will feed him? Bathe him? Clothe him, comfort him, make him feel like a king?
New Mexico—my home state and the best place on earth—has always been an oasis of common sense and compassion when it comes to abortion laws. But the new GOP majority in the state legislature is working to make that a thing of the past, successfully passing two bills out of committee that would severely limit access to abortion and family planning.
On July 11 of last year, the last day I arrived to work at the MailOnline newsroom in New York City and saw Keith Poole, our managing editor, standing outside smoking a cigarette. Even from a hundred yards away, it was clear that Poole—a generally pleasant Englishman who was the managing editor of the Daily Mail at the time—was agitated. It didn't take a detective to figure out why.
People like to talk, and that's no secret. But nevertheless, we try to keep our secrets anyway, despite the sheer amount of inappropriate or otherwise none-of-your-business intel that gets circulated not just among friends but at our places of employment. And the amount of intel we're talking is all of it. Some of it about you, even.

Darren Wilson, the cop who unnecessarily shot and killed 18 year-old Michael Brown and then profited off of his death, will not face federal civil rights charges for the incident. Wilson was cleared of criminal charges by a St. Louis grand jury in November.
This is a dream column for us: a biweekly review of subscription beauty boxes. Which ones are worth it? Which ones are full of junk? Reader Brandi Kirchgessner will guide us through this world of mystery treats. Here's what she's received recently.
At UC Berkeley, a tenured mental health policy professor named Steven Segal has found himself in a bit of trouble, thanks to his conflation of black-on-black crime with the Black Lives Matter movement, and his eagerness to blame victims of oppression for their oppression—which is probably easy when you're not oppressed yourself. (Segal is white. Perhaps he listens to the part of Kendrick Lamar's "Blacker the Berry" that I choose to ignore?
In June 2011, Mac McClelland published an essay called "I'm Going to Need You to Fight Me On This" in GOOD Magazine. It was a first-person piece about her use of violent sex as a means of dealing with PTSD, which she said had gripped her after a series of traumatizing events on a reporting trip to Haiti. Her account included what you could call an abduction attempt, and centered on a day she witnessed another woman's up-close flashbacks, triggered by the sight of one of the five men who had violently gang-raped her.
Hillary Clinton is already in a great deal of hot water for using a personal email address to conduct official business during her time as Secretary of State. Our brother site Gawker reported yesterday that two other top State Department officials also used personal emails. And now, the Associated Press reports, it looks like Clinton was also using her own private server.
A few months ago, I was snooping through a friend's bookshelf when I discovered a copy of Kelsey Grammer's 1995 autobiography So Far... Safe to say, I stole the book and read it cover to cover.
