I had thought Boston University was a fairly rigorous academic university.....but quite obviously, Ocasia-Cortez is an idiot of monumental proportion. She has said so many ridiculous false statements that BU should be rebranded as BS university.

It was a long time ago, 60 years, when I flunked out of MIT they gave me two condition for readmission. One was getting decent grades at another school for a semester or two. BU was an easy college to get into and it didn't have much of a reputation. But that was a long time ago.

The other condition was to get a Summer job. My dad got me one with the IBM Service Bureau in Caracas -- IBM management were clients at my dad's hotel. That was a life definer. After IBM I went to BU, back to MIT but quit half way through the Fall semester. Then I got my first full time job as a programer at the IBM Service Bureau.

I never had so much fun, they paid me to play games with the computer, or so it seemed! I got to solve a huge variety of problems -- that was a real education!
