Resumes and reality

Former Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson's resume said he had a double major in accounting and computer science at Stonehill College.  In fact he had not completed the requirements for a computer science major and was found out.  That is why he became a former CEO.

This seems to happen with depressing regularity.  Cases in recent years include a former CEO at Radio Shack (David Edmondson), a vice dean at the University of Pennsylvania (Douglas Lynch) and a former football coach at Notre Dame (George O'Leary). 

Remember what Forrest Gump said: "Stupid is as stupid does."
