Tear­ful time

New York Post - - NEWS -

IT’S sim­pler to write smart­mouth good­bye words than to come to heart­felt terms with los­ing a col­league. For me, this is painful. We stood side by side at galas, open­ings, mo­ments of our world’s life and death. Would she knock me over to nail a Page One? For sure. But we’re talk­ing an A-1 stand-up dame. The gal was great.

So — how­ever she’s man­ag­ing Up There to file for Heaven’s head­lines, my mes­sage to her now is: Rest easy, Liz — just face it that Ivana’s next exclusive will be mine.

Liz Smith. A one of a kind — and re­gard­less of whereverelse her col­umns may have printed — only in New York, kids, only in New York.
