Let's see, Denise Whiting says trademarking the word "Hon" isn't about profit ("Hands off 'Hon,' Hon," Dec. 10)? Then further in the article she says that she "thinks when the time is right, there could be an opportunity to use the Hon brand to make real money."
Oh, but wait, she might be willing to let the city use it for free in exchange for a parking lot. Anticipating possible challenges or negotiations with the city, she says "Its going to be fun. And I'm going to be ready."
Very nice, especially from someone who isn't even from Baltimore!
I guess profits from her businesses are not enough. Its hard to decide which one of her comments is the most arrogant. Possibly when she gives herself credit for having used the word to change the city by having taken a "little word, celebrated it and created change with it. Big change." I wonder if Baltimore City will use taxpayer's money to support her "Honfest" as they have in the past. I will never patronize her businesses again and will not take out of town guests to Cafe Hon (the food is mediocre anyway).
