I think it's funny... Everyone coming down on Akron, but I'm betting none of you are who I spent the last few holidays feeding the homeless with. And I bet none of you came out to clean up the Gorge. And how many of you walk your neighborhood and pick up garbage on the ground?
Rome wasn't built in a day, and Akron won't be cleaned up in one either. So many people want to bitch about the problem, but no one wants to step up and help resolve it.
There are a lot of noteworthy things in Akron. And if Chrissy Hynde's restaurant bring some positive attention, good! Maybe it will bring in people who are willing to HELP resolve the issues in our local society, instead of contributing to the problem.

Ironic how you will b|tch if anyone tries to quiet your opinions, but you'll be the first to try and take someone else's opinions away from them.
Like her opinion or not, she has a right to say it.
Agreed! My opinion of Chrissie is:- she is still a hornbag, ageing perfectly, still a slightly slutty,sweaty charmlet. Who really gives a shit what her or any other 'celebrity' says. It's all just grist for the mill.

Agreed!! And just because she's still a hornbag has nothing to do with it.

Most carnivores have no idea what being a true vegan is all about. A true vegan, like myself, consume no meat or dairy. Wear no clothing that was once an animals, nor purchase items that were made with animal byproducts, or where animals were tested to show that it is safe for humans (because carnivores don't care if an animal suffered or died for it, because as carnivores insist, humans are superior to them). We are not perfect, but we are compassionate about what we do, what we eat and what we aear and use. Sometimes product producers lie and dupe others to believe that their products are perfectly safe for vegans, but they do lie so we have to realy search their mission statements. My daughter and I (both vegan)just dined at her eating establishment, and we loved it. First time for me, second time for her because it takes us 30 minutes to geth there, but it was well worth the drive. We love ALL animals (not just the cute ones as others claim)and it was well worth the drive to get there.

As an omnivore, I can appreciate all genres of food. Vegan restaurant? Sure, why not? Sounds like fun to me.

Amanda - I salute you, for being passionate about your beliefs. And I salute you for (mostly) not throwing your beliefs into the face of others as somehow being superior.

I'm not a carnivore - I am an omnivore, as I believe the simple inclusion of canine teeth in our species indicates that nature intended us to be that way. But far be it for me to tell you what to, or not, to eat.

FWIW - even though I love a good steak occasionally, I can just as easily enjoy a vegan-friendly meal of pasta and a good red sauce. And - we have five animals in our household - four of which were rescues (two greyhounds, a rat terrier mix, and a cat).

We may disagree on what constitutes an animal 'suffering', but I can assure there many, if not most, of us don't condone consumption/killing of animals any more than that is absolutely is necessary - just the same as native-American Indians did centuries ago.

Not a bad way to think about things, but I am curious: Do vegans consider it immoral that Eskimos, Laaps and others did what they had to do to survive , i.e. eat and wear animal products where little or no plant foods were available? What about the Plains Indians that survived on the buffalo?
