It was impossible to be within radio/television reception distance of
Massachusetts and not hear it. In fact, WBZ Radio interviewed me (calling
me at home at 6:45 AM) about the whole incident (ten minutes of interview
reduced to a five second sound bite), so actually was a part of the
media circus that ensued.

This incident was written about extensively in the Boston Globe for
several days (and I would imagine the Boston Herald, too). Their archives
should reflect a fair amount of ink devoted to it. The radio folks (Jon
Keller, etc.) also weighed in with commentary.
