I socked away the Joe Ades, vegetable peeler, story after seeing him discussed on blogs a year or so ago. Jason was the first to tell me about his recent death, and I enjoyed reading David Galbraith's corrections and insight on who Joe really was, but do not miss Dave Pell's very nicely written post about Joe.

I love when a relatively small event like the death of Joe Ades, seems to dislodge a flood of things in a writer's mind.
