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. Gibbens:

We think you’ll agree with us that after three years of major violations in animal research, according to USDA inspection reports, it is time to take very serious action against the Texas Heart Institute.

Please use your office to put an end to this flagrant cruelty and misuse of funds.
We look forward to your reply. You can contact us at the address in this letter.

Thank you,

Frank L. Hoffman
