Apparently vegans are cuter.

Or so read a T-shirt for sale Saturday at the fourth annual Conference for
Conscious Living at the Technological Institute. Vendors offered vegan
clothing, pastries and literature to about 150 students and visitors
during the animal-rights conference organized by Justice For All and
EarthSave Chicago.

The conference, held for the third time at NU, featured animal-rights
speakers and a Conscious Living Fair made up of vegan organizations and
businesses in Chicago.

Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder and president of People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals, was scheduled to speak at the event but canceled
because of an "animal emergency" in India, Sharkey said.

Newkirk appeared by video during the conference to greet attendees and
explain her absence. The video included a speech by Newkirk at a 2002
animal-rights event along with footage of inhumane animal treatment in
various commercial industries.
