A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


David Cantor – 23 May 2006
By Mary T. Hoffman

Frank and I were in Albany, New York today for an excellent presentation by David Cantor on “Health, Conservation, Peace and a Humane Future: The Role of Government & Education.”

David Cantor, the founder and director of Responsible Policies for Animals, Inc. based in Glenside, Pennsylvania, is a man of integrity who stands head and shoulders above so many others who claim to be “activists.”

Meeting and listening to someone like David Cantor reminds me that there are still intelligent people in this world who are honest and courageous enough to peacefully work to make positive changes for the benefit of both humans and animals.

Here is the introduction from RPA’s brochure entitled “Human Problems: Animal Solutions”:

“There are built-in reasons why unnatural and inhumane ways of living produce illness, resource scarcity, pollution, war, and poverty. Big problems are hard to solve because their shared roots are not addressed.”

“Restoring natural boundaries between human beings and other animals – responsible policies for animals – is the best remedy, because they address problems’ roots, not just their fruits.”

I highly recommend this organization. For more information please visit:
