News reaches Astragal that editorial staff at the esteemed gentleman's journal Esquire have been having long and tortured meetings about how, and indeed whether, to tackle a subject as serious as Will Alsop. This might come as something of a surprise to those who accuse Will of dumbing down in the interests of popular appeal but begins to make more sense when you consider that he was actually scheduled to appear in next month's Esquire, but was ousted by? Peter Andre. Fresh from his nuptials to glamour model Jordan, Andre was in pensive mood and apparently spent much of the interview pondering the word 'thumb' and how it begins to sound funny if you say it over and over again. (Happily, Astragal can report that an Esquire journalist was present on a recent press trip to The Public, Alsop's new arts complex in West Bromwich, so Will may have his moment in the sun. )
