Cheap Eats

This is a week late, but: Dan Leone has been writing Cheap Eats for TEN YEARS now! I love Dan Leone! He's always the first thing I read when I pick up the Guardian. There is no other pleasure in my life quite like the pleasure of reading his column. (I have lots of other pleasures, just none that are like Dan Leone's writing.) It's a little scary & wonderful at the same time to contemplate how much influence he's had upon me & everybody else around here who reads him devotedly. Mere mortals like me can only aspire to have such an impact upon the community, to provoke so much happiness, & to write such excellent stuff on a weekly basis. Rock on, Dan Leone!
