WORD'S OUT THAT THE TOURISM WEB SITE IS UP

To the Source:
I found it rather funny reading your July 5 article regarding the unofficial V.I. Tourism website when I just heard — several times I might add — on the radio earlier this week advertisements that the official V.I. Tourism site has been launched and it is up and running. I live in Washington, D.C.
I work in the information technology field, and I really don't understand what is taking so long for the Department of Tourism to produce an official site. The Virgin Islands is already "behind" in the world of advertising. I might hear (just recently) an advertisement once or twice a month for the V.I. But I hear advertisements for Jamaica, Aruba, Bahamas and even Barbados all the time. Whether it be television, radio or magazines, we are not adequately advertised. You reap what you sow. We cannot expect a consistent increase in tourism when there is poor publicity.
Just my two cents.
