AND SPEAKING OF PAGE SIX...: Neal Travis, the gossip page's original editor who later wrote his own gossip column called "Neal Travis' New York," passed away yesterday of cancer at the age of 62. Travis most recently gained notoriety as the reporter who "outed" Mike Piazza, drawing the Met's ire and causing the resignation of the Post's best sports columnist, Wallace Matthews. While, by the very nature of his profession, Travis will likely leave behind just as many enemies as friends, I (as did many others) read his column almost every day, and he certainly will be missed.
