Traffic Jam: The Week Ending March 16

This week, the VN editors give you the best of the internet—four links (and one tweet!) at a time.

1. “The irony is that while legislatures protect factory farms, they’ve shown far less interest in protecting defenseless animals: No federal regulations protect farm animals from cruelty, and while state regulations exist, factory farms are rarely investigated and laws are seldom enforced.”—This article.

2. Want to celebrate St. Patty’s in foodie fashion? Irish Soda Bread, Cauliflower Colcannon, Cottage Pie, and Irish Coffee Cheesecake with Shortbread Crust should help get you started.

3. Now this is just plain cool: Brooklyn Vegan hosted Hotel Vegan at SXSW this year, featuring live music galore. Vegans do rock! (Ba-dum ching.)

4. Our friends over at Vegansaurus were nominated for a Treehugger Best of Green Readers’ Choice Award! Go vote for them!

5. And for our Tweet of the Week, we have a question for Allyson Kramer: Can we come live at your house? “Today’s been pretty rad: market @ end of my street just got Daiya in, garden veggies are sproutin’ & I’ve got graham crackers in my oven.”—@ManifestVegan
