APRIL FOOL

For those of you not on FaceBook (or who didn’t see my status update there), I just added the following post:
 
In honor of April Fools’ Day (a day early), a quote from UNLEAVENED DEAD:
“I particularly liked the story about the history professor who, in nineteen eighty-three, publicized his theory that April Fools’ Day originated when Constantine allowed his court jester to rule the empire for the day. The punch line is that the professor’s story was itself a hoax, a perfect example of an April Fools’ Day joke. And the Jewish connection (and probably a tipoff that the story was a fabrication): the jester’s name was Kugel.”
