IT'S a nasty sight, the carrion crows descending to feed upon the entrails of what was once a vigorous newspaper. And it's hard to imagine, after this evisceration, that the New York Post can be brought back to anything resembling journalistic life.There's a dishonor roll attached to this sad event that's worth looking at. It reads: Murdoch, Kalikow, Hoffenberg, Hirschfeld -- the names of the money men who in less than 20 years stripped the nearly two-century-old paper of its self-respect.

NEW YORK -- The New York Post, which was supposed to be sold to real estate developer Abraham Hirschfeld last Friday, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection yesterday.Attorneys for Peter Kalikow, the paper's current owner, who is involved in personal bankruptcy proceedings, said the newspaper took the action, with Mr. Hirschfeld's consent, to prevent spurned bidder Steven Hoffenberg from interfering with the paper's operations.The 192-year-old newspaper, founded by Alexander Hamilton, didn't publish yesterday because of a near-revolt by its staff, prompted by Sunday's announcement that Mr. Hirschfeld planned to fire 272 workers.

THIS WEEK marks the 70th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, so to celebrate I recently mixed up a batch of speakeasy cocktails.

As a young man about town, Hirschfeld toured dozens of...

AL HIRSCHFELD knew Baltimore - and loved it. The feeling was mutual. Mr. Hirschfeld, the legendary theatrical caricaturist and chronicler who died Monday at 99, came to Baltimore for decades to see pre-Broadway tryouts. He would sit in the darkened theater and sketch on 8-by-10-inch notebooks, then return to his Upper East Side townhouse in New York and turn his "hieroglyphics" into the astonishing, lithe and sparkling drawings that captured not only the personalities of the performers but the spirit of the shows.

WASHINGTON -- Ending one of America's most famous and damaging lawsuits, President Clinton agreed yesterday to pay Paula Corbin Jones $850,000 to withdraw her sexual misconduct case. The president made no apology and admitted nothing.By settling the case that had led to the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, Clinton put a stop to a legal challenge that threatened to run on for months and might have gone to trial in a flood of more negative publicity.Jones stands to receive some money -- after her lawyers take an undetermined share -- from a lawsuit that had been dismissed and whose long-term prospects were doubtful, even if it had been revived on appeal and gone to trial.

NEW YORK -- By yesterday, editors and reporters at the New York Post were in full-scale revolt."We've got control of the newsroom," said a reporter, Don Broderick. "Now all we need is control of the courtroom."Abandoned by the paper's new would-be owner, the staff of the nation's oldest daily newspaper showed up for work without pay yesterday, while its deposed editor marched past security guards to head the jubilant newsroom. Staffers ignored their new boss -- who had no intention of publishing -- and carried on putting out New York's grittiest, grimiest newspaper.
