Blog: Not a cool cat

Catherine Sleep | 1 February 2006

So former Wal-Mart VC Tom Coughlin has pleaded guilty to stealing money, gift cards and merchandise from his employer. How very embarrassing.

Worst of all, he showed poor taste. Among his thieved items were a pair of snakeskin boots and, wait for it, a Céline Dion CD. Coughlin apologised to his family for embarrassing them. I should say so!

I suppose it’s wrong to be flippant about a fall from grace, but there is a funny side. If it had been Franz Ferdinand or, oh I don’t know, maybe Pink Floyd, at least he’d have been famous for being cool, as well as dishonest.
