  1. Wow

    The only thing more loathsome than Lindsay Lohan in that article is the real owner of the coat, Masha Markova.

    How many Columbia students have their own personal litigation team to call up a celebrity to get back an $11,000 mink coat left in a Meatpacking District club?

    Sounds like being the "victim" of this crime really paid off here: she's certainly getting her 15 minutes...

  2. and...

    the nerdy Columbians are fake Columbians!

    (I actually learned something when I first read this. Thanks (i think))

  3. I agree  

    It seems overwhelmingly obnoxious to have an $11,000 coat while an undergrad in college. Even more obnoxious: to parlay some retarded celebrity taking it into above-mentioned 15 minutes of fame.
