How do you feel about this: John Hoff, the Minneapolis, Minnesota blogger that made national headlines after he was sued and lost a blogging harassment case with a $60,000 judgment, has used the commemoration of 9/11 to announce his latest money making venture - a blog about his adventures while serving in Afghanistan. John Hoff writes from his barracks in a special 9/11 blog edition, "I wish to make some money blogging--or at least revel in free meals, free trips and free samples--as well as produce commentary on national and even global issues." So Spc. John Hoff sees the commemoration of 9/11 as an opportunity to make money, and announce his latest venture. He is, in my opinion, in need of counseling. Opinions?
