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.

Dear Dr. Goldentyer:

Please take immediate action to stop the ongoing abuse of rhesus monkeys utilized in the Medical College of Virginia laboratories. Please see to it that these shameful, obviously unnecessary drug addiction experiments that have been going on for 30 consecutive years are terminated and that the perpetrators are penalized to the fullest extent of the law.
We look forward to your reply. You can contact us at the address in this letter.

Thank you,

Frank L. Hoffman
