The ripples from Steve Schwarzman’s birthday party continue to disturb the placid surface of society. Jacob Bernstein of WWD (behind a firewall) gets all investigative about a party one anonymous guest deemed “soulless” and another, “the end of something.” TV Guide agrees, quoting another of Schwarzman’s hundreds of intimates, whose feeling is that the night was “a sign that a buyout bust could be just around the corner.” Though I know it’s unlikely, I hope Saul Steinberg is getting a kick out of this. I’m also hoping that next week’s New York mag will include an insider account from its owner, one of those many, many close personal intimates, Bruce Wasserstein.
