If Boston University wants to honor Howard Stern, it will have to try a little harder. Talking yesterday on his Sirius Satellite Radio show, Stern said he had received a letter from his alma mater, asking if it can give him an honorary degree from College of Communication. Of course, that wasn't enough for the cantankerous King of All Media, who wondered why the school isn't giving him a doctorate, and griped that he doesn't want to come to Boston to pick it up. Stern graduated from BU in 1976 and now funds a scholarship at the school. A BU spokesman told us he didn't hear Howard's harangue, but it's unlikely to change anyone's feeling about the famous grad. "He's fantastic," said the flack.
