BOSTON - What then should be her epitaph? What final handle should we choose for the woman who was our adviser-in-chief? Sensible from Sioux City? Eppie Lederer died on Saturday, taking Ann Landers with her. The two were, after all, inseparable. For nearly half a century, Lederer/Landers made sense the way other people make cars or computer chips. Sense, however, was a much rarer product, harder to fashion and always in demand. In her newspaper office, in her apartment, in her bathtub, Ms. Lederer answered letters one decade after another until cancer finally did what few editors dared - ended her column.

OUR friend the Sensitive Male was distraught as he asked, "Do you know this song, 'Sioux City Sue'?"All of us of a certain age know the song, we replied, but we were surprised that SM knew about it, since it has been neither sung nor spun since 1954."

Today's the day that KMEG of Sioux City, Iowa, one of the few CBS stations to refuse to broadcast "Late Show With David Letterman" a year ago, finally joins the fold and adds "Late Show" to its schedule. No word yet on whether Mr. Letterman will relocate its Top 10 "home office," which it chose as Sioux City specifically to tweak that station for its lack of cooperation. But since we're not in Sioux City, that's more a trivia note than a programming note. For a programming note, try this: Tonight Fox follows a prime-time showing of "The X-Men" with a repeat of "The X-Files."
