Gregor Steele's propulsion from the middle pages of The TES Scotland to Sunday Post superstar (TESS, March 21) should have come as no surprise to him. Doesn't he realise that in this publicity-hungry age the slightest suggestion of a hook on which to hang the promotional flag will be seized upon?
Gregor's comment that Dundee should be turned into an Oor Wullie theme park is behind the times - crivvens. The Verdant Works, already housing a working museum of the jute industry, is now planning to add the other two Js of jam and journalism to its attractions.
Despite the bad press Dundee has received nationally, here in Beano-land we're not just a city with a past. DC Thomson are helping to promote a "From Dundee and Proud of it" campaign not just locally but worldwide. Dundee College is just one of the organisations to back the campaign.
I'll bet Gregor Steele that someone seizes on the mention of Dundee in his article and writes in to The TES Scotland's letters page probably managing to mention Dundee - oh, at least half a dozen times.
