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. Slavin:

I have become aware of the fact that the laboratories of the Massachusetts General Hospital have amassed a large number of serious violations, including inadequate veterinary care, unqualified personnel, and the filing of potentially fraudulent reports with regulatory agencies.

These activities reflect poorly on the reputation of your facility, and I think you’ll agree with me that this outweighs any perceived financial benefit from these projects.

Please see to it that these “experiments” are terminated as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Mary T. Hoffman, MT (ASCP)
