Chris Kelly: I think that I have become much more comfortable in my skin and much more comfortable in my own sexuality, in a nice way, where the anxiety of being gay doesn’t fill every waking moment of my life the way it did when I was a teenager or when I first came out.

Sheriffs and police chiefs have strongly criticized the Minneapolis officer on social media and praised the city’s police chief for his quick dismissal of four officers at the scene.

Earlier this summer, Sandra Tsing Loh, in an essay about her divorce, came out against the “companionate marriage” in the Atlantic Monthly. Cristina Nehring blamed such bloodless arrangements for the bankrupt state of romance in “A Vindication of Love.” Only the profoundly unhip Caitlin Flanagan defended the institution in Time. A story in Thursday’s New York Times offers details about her new memoir, “Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage,” which will be published by Viking in January.
