News, or April Fool’s joke?

local website
says that Hoboken Mayor David Roberts recently revealed that during his final months in office, he going to bring riverboat gambling to the city as a way to raise revenue. The quotes and comments seem to be a pretty obvious April Fool’s joke, although another news blog has apparently picked up on it as real.
The article is clearly flawed, anyway, since it doesn’t answer the most important question: Can we smoke on the boat??
