Cruise Control

Katie Holmes has finally decided college is not for her, and now her dad wants his deposit back from Columbia University.

Tom Cruise's fiancee was accepted to the prestigious school back in 1998, the year 'Dawson's Creek' premiered. Her dad, Martin Holmes, plunked down a $500 "non-refundable" deposit. Because of 'Dawson's,' Holmes kept deferring her admission to Columbia, where starlets like Anna Paquin, Julia Stiles and Maggie Gyllenhaal were enrolled at the time.

Last week, eight years after Holmes was accepted, her dad wrote to Columbia's undergrad admissions office withdrawing his daughter's name and requesting his 500 bucks back.

1 Seems petty for a rather wealthy man (her father's not hurtin' for cash). It's what we call "sunk cost" - 8 years ago!

2 I'm sure he'd say, "It's the principal of the thing", otherwise, Katie (or the nut) ought to pony-up.

3 Actually, he'd probably say "principle" instead of "principal" ...
