Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan Talk ‘Walking Dead’ Season 3: During a panel about the show, Yeun and Cohan answered questions about the reality of romance during a zombie armageddon, how they felt at the end of shooting, and what Season 3 will be like for the survivors, now that Rick has taken a somewhat darker character turn.
…Yeun and Cohan did touch on how Rick’s transition into a more assertive and aggressive leader in the Walking Dead Season 2 Finale may impact the group moving forward.
Yeun: You see people really at a crossroads between what’s right and what’s wrong. You even saw Rick falter a little bit. Shane’s gone now, so there’s no other side of the coin. Now it’s up to people to make their own choices, and now it’s a “Ricktatorship.”
Cohan: I think [Rick killing Shane] had to happen. I think Shane wanted him to do it. I think he was egging him on to do it. They couldn’t both wear the crown so to speak.
Yeun: It’s someone not being predictable. With Rick, I think you could always kind of see what he was going to do and the choices he was going to make, but now you don’t know because he went a little bit, slightly bonkers.
Cohan: Ever since the bar scene, when he killed those two guys, I think it’s very interesting to see the divide in his character.
Yeun: It’s like he’s grown a third ball. He’s got an extra ball to facilitate what’s going on.

Mitt Romney to Mothers: Want dignity? ‘You need to go to work’: [T]he real failure of this new strategy to divert attention away from the Republicans’ assault on women is that it’s Republicans who have long waged war against mothers. Pick any policy that better enables women to spend more time with their children or to make the choice Ann Romney did, not to work at all, and Republicans are 100 percent against it. Paid family leave laws so working mothers can spend time with their new infants? Against it. Housing and nutritional assistance so women can forgo employment to stay home with their children? Not only are Republicans against that, but in several states, Republicans have pushed for, and even enacted, legislation requiring those women to submit to drug tests. Because obviously any woman who wants to make the choice to stay home with her children must be a drug addict. Unless her name is Ann Romney. [DailyKos/Kalli Joy Gray/16 Apr 2012]
