The Triple El neighborhood (Elsinore Drive, Elsinore Court and El Cajon Way)is very proud of our friend and neighbor Leslie Lamport and of his receiving the 2013 Turing Award. Major kudos and congratulations go to Leslie from all of us. Besides being a world-reknowned computer scientist, Leslie is a great neighbor. We just hope that he and Ellen set aside a tiny, tiny portion of his Turing Award so that we can forever enjoy their outstanding brownies at our neighborhood parties!
