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.


Another Letter to the USDA – 3 April 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

Here is another email letter that we wrote to Dr. Robert Gibbens of the USDA after learning that heinous animal abuse is still going on at the notorious labs of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

The following is the letter that we sent to Dr. Gibbens:

2 April 2008

Dr. Robert Gibbens
Director, Western Region
2150 Centre Avenue
Building B, Mailstop 3W11
Fort Collins, CO 80526-8117
[email protected]

Dear Dr. Gibbens:

The continued waste of our tax dollars to fund unapproved surgical procedures by Stephen Lisberger and others at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is deeply disturbing. In addition, the duplication of research and the ongoing bacterial infections and water deprivation of primates make it even more apparent that this abuse should have ended long ago.

Please take immediate action to end this compromised, cruel and sloppy “research” as soon as possible.

We look forward to your reply. You can contact us at the address in this letter.

Thank you,

Frank L. Hoffman
Mary T. Hoffman
