"Who Are They All Talking To?"
That's a comment crime novelist Elmore Leonard once made to my boyfriend (who is also his researcher of 32 years) about all the people jabbering away on cell phones.
And a tweet by my boyfriend from Elmore's Twitter account, which he runs:
Elmore thinks the smartphone is dumb. "Why is communication so important to everybody now? Everybody making calls you'd never make before."
