There are 5 comments on How a BU Prof April-Fooled the Country

  1. I was the Freep reporter (not editor) in the class that day. After class, I asked Prof. Boskin if he would mind if I wrote the story for the newspaper. He agreed, I ran back to the paper, wrote the story and we put it on the front page alongside the original AP story. The rest, as they say, is history.
