Does anyone at The Times actually read the puff-piece ramblings of Liz Smith? Her column is an embarrassment to your paper. Liz runs an interview with Cyndy Garvey (Calendar, Oct. 4). After that the real Cyndy Garvey calls to say that the first Cyndy was a fake (Calendar, Oct. 16). Liz quotes the first Cyndy as saying that Regis Philbin made no mention of her in his book; later, Liz admits that Regis did indeed mention Cyndy in his book. It's called fact-checking, Liz--look into it. Then, instead of apologizing for her stupid mistake, she shifts the blame to the person who hoaxed her. I was sorry when you added Liz Smith to Calendar several years ago, but her pathetic column, with its toadying to celebrities and rewriting of press releases, has become intolerable.

I can only tell you, if he was my husband or my friend or my associate, I would become hysterical and need counseling just being around this "pillar of perfection." All I can say to Cyndy Garvey is, I wish you and your daughters all the best. TERESA BIRD, Torrance

Former Dodger and Padre Steve Garvey charges that a book by his ex-wife is part of a methodical campaign to bring him down. In an interview for the television program, "A Current Affair," Garvey lashes out at Cyndy Garvey for writing, "The Secret Life of Cyndy Garvey," with Andy Meisler. The book paints an unflattering picture of the one-time first baseman. "She really does hate me," Garvey says of his former wife. "That is her sole goal in life . . .
