Doug and all,

I posted the original message claiming that cellphones simply aren't hardboiled. I was posting on the why-I-like-rara-avis thread. One of the things I find endearing is our penchant for going round-and-round on the issue of what is or is not hardboiled. So, I decided I would single out the cellphone as completely and unequivocally not hardboiled. I didn't guess -- but should have -- that my comment would take legs and run off on its own! After all, we are rare birds.
