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:

The violations of the Animal Welfare Act including fraudulent reporting and inadequate veterinary care involving dogs and rabbits in the laboratories of Loyola University in Chicago, Illinois have been brought to our attention.

We urge you to please see to it that these perpetrators of abuse are penalized to the fullest extent allowed by law.

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

Thank you,
