Watto's Junk Yard / Re: JD Book Club: What Are You Reading Now?

I'm finished with my current masters class and don't start another for about 5 weeks so I'm going to get some leisure reading done.  I'm almost finished with what's below but don't know what I'm going to start next.

Might as well bump this up.

I went to see Motley Crue about a week ago when they were here in Dallas.  All I can say is the concert was bad ass.  It was funny seeing the people there who are still lost in the 80's.  I'm not talking about the music, but the way they dressed.  It wasn't just mock dressing, but truly what they wear.

Anyhow, the Crue was awesome!!  I was a bit disappointed Mars didn't do a guitar solo, but the crowd was rocking, the fireworks were great and it was good to hear my all time favorite band tearing up the stage.

I agree.  However, he did have a couple of funny moments this week.

"Wow, he's running at an all out sprint."

The Army and Vietnam.  It's for my masters and I've already read it once for another course, but it's still a good read to understanding some of the Army's blunders at the direction of the "whiz kids" of the Johnson administration.  It goes into fantastic detail from the French defeat at Dien Bien Phu to the US withdrawal in 1973 and covers a lot of the strategic plans for Special Forces that were later replaced by regular army forces and ultimately destroying what the SF guys had done.

Paul, what's the acceleration like?  I know its got a small motor, but can you jam the peddle and get some kick to it?  Part of me wants to wait for the 2012 model with the pentastar 280hp motor.  But I don't like buying new cars.  Like you, I only have a five mile roundtrip ride to work.

You would think.  There are a ton of them here.

Not that I mind, it's a great truck and I never regretted buying it...except it has a big freakin' target on it now.

What the hell - don't you drive an older F-150? 

Where do you live, Detroit?

Yep, 2000 F150 4x4.  I live in the Dallas area.

But, that particular body style has a very easy door lock to break.  All you need is a screw driver and some force to pop the lock.  The cop that took my report told me that three other F150s had been hit in the same area as mine on the same day.  The assclowns managed to steal one of them.

I should clarify that I'm looking for the three piece hard top.  I'm just not a fan of the soft top and I don't know why, I just simply don't like it.

Okay, I've got to bitch here...

Some assclown tried to steal my truck yesterday while I was in class.  He busted the ignition and then I'm guessing couldn't do the deed, so he took the stereo.  That's the second time in the past month my stereo was stolen.  This is the fourth time in the past five years my truck has been broken into. 

So now I'm trying to decide if I really want a new car now because I'm tired of this.  I'm in a debate now about an FJ Cruiser vs Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.  The FJ has more power (which is important to me) but the Jeep is just plain cool but has a really bitch motor in it.  I'm planning to buy used as I don't want to get hit with that first two years depreciation.  What say you guys who have any real experience with either of those?

I'm not proposing or suggesting a car for anyone here.  I just want to say I think it's interesting see what people view as most important to them when considering a car purchase.
