Pope tenderly kissed on forehead by man in front-row seat
Well-wishers at Pope Francis' weekly audience have thrust soccer T-shirts, flowers and many a wailing baby into his arms. On Wednesday, Francis seemed to thoroughly enjoy a surprise expression of affection: a long, tender kiss planted on his forehead by a man in one of the front-row seats reserved for ailing or disabled people at the end of his audience. Francis appeared to be smiling when the man, who stood up when the pontiff approached to greet him and others in the front row, pulled the pope's head toward him and gave a kiss lasting several seconds, pressing his nose against Francis' forehead in the process.

Warren translates Bloomberg's non-answer on harassment: 'What he said was "Well, I'm nice to some women"'
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has no time for Michael Bloomberg's excuses.During his Wednesday night Democratic debate debut, the former New York City mayor and billionaire businessman was repeatedly confronted for his dismal track record when it comes to the treatment of women. Warren kicked off that confrontation early in the night, and didn't let up when Bloomberg failed to explain the nondisclosure agreements he still maintains with women who've worked for him in the past."I hope you heard what his defense was. 'I've been nice to some women.'" Warren fired back after Bloomberg's non-answer, to a pronounced eyeroll from Bloomberg. She then called on Bloomberg to release women from their NDAS. Bloomberg wouldn't say just how many NDAs there were, and then said those women "accuse me of doing anything; maybe they didn't like the joke I told." Warren used that flippant response to dig in further.> Sen.
