One very hot summer's day a long Time ago, I was walking up Third Avenue and coming towards me was a wonderful figure dressed in black and white. I remember thinking, before I realized who it was, that here was someone with super style - someone who knew how to look good in that terrible humidity and heat. As he drew nearer, I realized it was my friend Way Bandy. I thought, wouldn't you know it would be Way ! It had to be. One wanted it to be, and one wants, still, to see that figure rushing down Third Avenue. I guess that, although I've worked on magazines for years, I will never cease to admire and be amazed by talent. Way Bandy was big talent: All of us who were fortunate enough to have worked with him won't forget the marvelous personality, and, definitely. we will never forget the talent. What a loss to us as editors. What a loss to us as pals.
