Re: Re - RARA-AVIS: Hard-Boiled

Date: 10 Feb 2000

 Found the thread on the orgin of the term "hard-boiled" interesting, but then
 after WW1 boot camp was suggested as to it's orgin the thread whet to the
 orgin of the term "Dick" for a PI. Am researching "Hard-boiled" here and am
 willing to take any help I can get if the list would like to once again pick up the
 thread. Also was told anything "hard-boiled" was yellow in the middle,
 the opposite of of this list's meaning of the term. Suppose "Hard-Boiled"
 simply refers to a "tough egg"?

Resent spelling corrected, Malone
