Ann Landers Dies

Ann Landers was the pen name of Esther Lederer, who died Saturday at age 83. Her daughter said it was her wish that no writer take over her column.

Lederer had won a contest to become the second Ann Landers after the column's creator died in 1955.

Margo Howard said her mother owned the copyright and "did not wish for the name to continue."

A new column called "Ann's Mailbox" will be written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, who were Lederer's longtime editors.
