Lisa Sorg and INDY Week: This article and all of your other coverage of the Bull City Vegan Challenge has been so awesome!! Thank you!
I tried one of those vegan s'more cupcakes today, just before The Cupcake Bar closed because of the snowpocalypse. They taste as good as they look. Yum!
Thanks to Bob Geary and the Independent Weekly for this helpful report. I agree that the climate movement is still searching for effective strategies and tactics. I do have the sense, however, that our movement is making substantial progress. While this past weekend's Climate Convergence on Raleigh may not have attracted the massive participation that many of us were hoping for, I think it's fair to say that it was a useful and productive gathering that has taken the climate movement another step forward.
Many thanks to everyone fighting for a healthy environment and a liveable future.

Speaking of climate change, I hope everyone will consider joining the energetic, historic campaign to stop Duke-Progress Energy from raising rates to fund expensive, dirty, climate-changing energy production.
There's a hearing in Raleigh on Wednesday (3/13). NC WARN provides all the details at http://www.ncwarn.org/2012/12/irp-and-rate…. Please consider doing what you can to stop Duke Energy from continuing their reckless, predatory, climate-destroying ways. Please join us in saying, NO RATE HIKES FOR DIRTY ENERGY!!
It's time for Duke Energy to make the switch to clean power.

Nice work, Bob Geary! Thank you, Independent Weekly!
Thanks for everything Nice Price Carrboro. You will be missed.
Animal welfare expert Temple Grandin is right. Pigs and other farm animals deserve better treatment than cages so small that they can't even turn around.
And Mary Beth Sweetland of the Humane Society of the United States is right. Prestage Farms' money could be better used to relieve some of the tremendous suffering they are causing to their pigs.
North Carolina State University Chancellor Randy Woodson, on the other hand, gets it wrong when he suggests that Bill Prestage's donation is welcome. Many of us would be much more pleased if N.C. State chose to end its support of industrial animal agriculture since the industry is built upon routine animal cruelty, human rights abuses, and the destruction of our environment.
Many thanks to Will Huntsberry and the Independent Weekly for shedding light on these important issues. I look forward to the day when the State of North Carolina is no longer associated with the unconscionable practices of Prestage Farms, Smithfield Foods, Butterball, Tyson Foods, Perdue Farms, and all of the other factory farming corporations currently abusing animals and harming our communities.
