“Breastfeeding Welcome Here” signs are popping up all over Decatur, Georgia, thanks to high school senior Sophie Mumper. Her senior project is aimed at de-stigmatizing public breastfeeding.

The coalition says though Georgia law allows women to breastfeed anywhere in public, the reality is that many mothers face backlash from establishments, and there are no legal repercussions for these matters.

Weeks after he lost an ill-advised fight to a seventh grader, comedian Katt Williams has been arrested yet again. According to local reports, this time Williams threw a salt shaker at the manager of a restaurant in Atlanta, after his dinner party “was denied preferential seating.” Police then located Williams at a Waffle House nearby and took the comedian into custody without incident. Williams was charged with battery, and released around 12:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 28, after posting bail.
