So were you there? I didn't see you. You probably saw me, or heard me rather, I was the one who asked him the question about the Great Ape Project.

I'm in Illinois, but originally from MN and have family there. Anyway, wish I could have gone to the Peter Singer lecture. I bet it was great. Also, Singer had a great op-ed on 3/21/06 in the Minnesota Daily (mndaily com)<br><br><br><br>
Also, I just want to mention that PETA will be in Minneapolis next weekend (4/1-4/2) doing a Helping Animals 101 conference. For anyone interested in doing their part to alleviate animal suffering, I strongly recommend this conference. I attended one in Chicago last year. I had been vegetarian for 12 years and had recently switched to veganism and felt like I wouldn't learn much. I was very wrong. It was a great experience, the vegan food was delicious,and it was just such wonderful energy being surround by others who get it. Also, it's a good opportunity to put human faces to the PETA image. All the staffers I talked to and all the speakers were very compassionate people who really walk the talk. I'm attending the MN conference and bringing my brother and sister-in-law and hoping it will have a positive influence on their lives since neither are veggie (yet--I can hope anyway).<br><br><br><br>
They have student rates and a 2-for-1 rate for non-students. Anyway, I highly recommend this and for those who don't like PETA, I challenge you to go learn who they really are firsthand and see if your opinion of them doesn't change at least a little. You can register on-line at PETA's website. Just look for Helping Animals 101.<br><br><br><br>
I really hope some of you can make it. You won't regret it!!

I was there! I heard your question but I don't remember glancing up to see who was asking it. I was getting a bit restless by that time.<br><br><br><br>
I heard that there was somewhere around 1500 people there, and they had to turn away a few hundred. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wideeyed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":boobies:">

I was also there and I also bought an Animal Liberation book and he signed it! Yay!<br><br><br><br>
Now I have 2 signed Peter Singer books. I saw him back in October 2004 at the Freedom From Religion Foundation conference in Madison, Wisconsin. I bought his book Writings on an Ethical Life, which is pretty much a collection of his major contributions. Very powerful. I enjoyed his speech at the Minnesota lecture and I was familiar with his points, but I'm afraid they didn't sound as strong as they sound in his book and may have just left omnivores confused or even more strong in their positions. Hm.<br><br><br><br>
I live in Minneapolis now and attend the U, I'd love to do more stuff with you guys and get to know the vegetarian community here in Mpls/St.Paul better!!<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

What neighborhood(s)?</div>
</div>
<br>
East Isles. After looking at a map- maybe that would be considered west Minneapolis? Oh well.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I am not, sadly. And unfortunately I won't be able to make the KFC demo after the conference on Sunday either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Wish I could be there.

As in Lake of the Isles? If so, you're somewhat near where I used to live in Uptown (Wedge).</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
Yeah, kind of. I'm actually closer to to the Lakes than I am to the Wedge, though. I'm about 2 or 3 blocks from the Uptown theater and a block from Lake of the Isles. The Wedge is within biking distance, though! I'm a member there and go there often.<br><br><br><br>
Unfortunately I'm scheduled to work a double today and won't be around to go to the conference. The weekends are always way too busy for me to do much of anything aside from work.

Hi, everyone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
My name is Brett; I live just west of Uptown, close to Whole Foods and Excelsior & Grand and have lived here since I moved from South Dakota just a few months ago.<br><br><br><br>
I am wondering if anyone here is looking or knows someone who is looking for a place to live? I need a roommate to share my 2-bedroom apartment, and I would love to live with another vegan or vegetarian person. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
