Gung Haggis Fat Choy gets BLOGGED! all around the world!
“Gung Haggis Fat Choy” has been
reported on the net all around the world. “You're famous in Scotland,
you know, you've been posted on Friends of Scotland,” Harry
McGrath told me last night at the Vancouver Public Library
reading for Gung Haggis Fat Choy Poetry Night. And Harry should
know about Scotland, he was born there, and he is coordinator of the SFU Centre for Scottish Studies Program, Last year when he was quoted in the Canadian Press story Chinese Don Kilts,
the story got picked up across Canada, the United States and especially
in Scotland. “All my friends and relatives were calling me,”
Harry told me when the story first came out.
