Filming For The Walking Dead Season 3 To Begin In May: The Citizen is reporting that shooting for The Walking Dead Season 3 at Raleigh Studios will begin on May 31st and continue until November. Apparently, production crews are building a large “safety zone” which Location Manager Mike Riley describes as being “ruled by a benevolent dictator” at Raleigh Studios which is located in Senoia, Georgia. Also worth reporting, Location Manager Mike Riley spoke at another Coweta County city council meeting, saying that portions of the series will be filmed at “Turkey Creek Road near the fire department, at Sportsman’s Deer Cooler in Haralson and at a house in Turin where the production is requesting to close Reese Road between McIntosh Trail and Odom Road.” Riley also says that each episode will take 9 days (Monday-Friday) to film and that “The storyline runs from a rural area to an urban area and back to a rural area, we were here last year and much of the show was shot in this area.” [thewalkingdeadpodcast/Dane/25 Apr 2012]

Woman Hit Cop In Head With Pink Dildo In New York: Report: She violated the penal law. Upstate New York police are buzzing with anger today after a woman threw a pink sex toy that hit an officer in the head. The Smoking Gun reported that cops went to the Watertown home of Lisa Anderson, 47, on a complaint of an “unwanted person” in the home at 3 a.m. What happened next left officer Jonathan Pitts red in the face. “With intent to harass, annoy, or alarm another person, [Anderson] did throw a pink in color sex toy toward Officer Pitts, the victim, and struck him in the forehead,” according to court documents.

California Advances Bills To Expand Access To Abortions: While states across the nation are imposing new restrictions on abortion procedures, California advanced legislation yesterday to expand access to a first-trimester abortions. Under a senate measure, “nurse practitioners, nurse midwives and physician assistants would be able to perform what is known as an ‘aspiration’ abortion, which is the most common abortion procedure and takes place in the first trimester of a pregnancy.” A separate bill advanced in an Assembly Committee “passed a separate bill that would expand access to birth control by allowing registered nurses to dispense the medication.” Supporters of both measures hope that the bills would expand the accessibility and affordability of the procedures, especially for women who live in rural areas (where 97 percent of rural counties have no abortion provider). Significantly, the expansion is also safe: a five-year study conducted by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco “found that nurse practitioners, midwives and physician assistants can perform the abortions as safely as physicians.” [thinkprogress/Igor Volsky/25 Apr 2012]
