Obituary writers at the student-run newspaper at Boston University have faced an uncomfortable honing of talents lately, as campus-related deaths soared into the double-digits in recent months.
John Silber, the sharp-tongued, pugnacious public intellectual who transformed Boston University during a quarter-century as president and mounted an unsuccessful run for governor of Massachusetts, died Thursday. He was 86.
"It's staggering," said Mr. Riley, in the ABC report. "Young people should be going through their lives reaching old age."
In total, 11 BU undergraduate and graduate students have died over the past 13 months, university spokesman Colin Riley said, to ABC.
