Went to Pacific Rim for an anniversary dinner recently, and it was excellent. Cheaper than Chop House (which I also love), but equally good food. They also have booths that are conducive to a romantic vibe; just ask when reserving.

Ok, but a new car is not an investment and should not be characterized as such. Treat it as an expense, kind of like food. Sometimes folks want lobster, and a lot of it. (Me, justifying blowing money on vehicles.)

04/18/2017 - 1:09pm Do you actually like it? I

Do you actually like it? I wouldn't get too wrapped up in the AWD thing. Modern AWD and 4WD  systems should be sufficient for most drivers' winter needs, especially with winter tires. (You should have winter tires.)

04/18/2017 - 1:05pm I want to like this, but

I want to like this, but can't. Styling is off. The doors are not the right size. It's weird. Do not want. 

04/18/2017 - 1:03pm It's my first, and I may

It's my first, and I may become a lifer, though I can't speak to pre-2014s. I love it. It has a decent amount of cargo space with easily folding seats. It's very capable in snow, even on all seasons. It's stylish. The ride is comfortable, and it's fairly agile. 

The only problem I've had is with the gear selector. There was the huge recall on that, and it was responsible for some deaths. The design was atrocious, but it was fixed through a software update. The UConnect system can be a bit laggy at times. Other than that, I have zero complaints. Be advised, the GC has a unique, upright driver's position, and it may take some getting used to. It felt a bit weird when I first test drove it. But once you're used to it, it's actually really nice. 

04/18/2017 - 12:06pm Agree with this completely.

Agree with this completely. When I was a kid, I loved the GTI, and I couldn't understand why anyone would buy a more expensive car. "Just buy the GTI and put the rest of the money in sick mods. Duh."

Love this. An American (I'm assuming you're not European) who appreciates hot hatches and wagons.

04/18/2017 - 11:53am If I get my way...

End of 2017: another Grand Cherokee (ideally an SRT, used, if the significant other would be ok with driving it daily)

Early 2018: New BMW M2, 2015+ M3, new Audi S4 or the new Audi RS3. I can't decide if I want AWD. I loved my old A4 S-Line (B7), and wouldn't midn another Audi. The M2 is the only coupe I am considering, but am open to good suggestions. 

I doubt I'll get my way, but I'll try.

Short-sighted. Jacoby understands well what aspects of Jalen's personality make for the best listen, and he asks the right questions and provides the right input to encourage that.

09/27/2016 - 6:36pm So the pain and fragmentation

So the pain and fragmentation caused by slavery will finally have an impact strong enough, within some 100 years, to finally drive the country apart? And yet an actual civil war could not? And yet Jim Crow could not? And yet segregation, race riots, etc. could not?

That doesn't make sense at all. The disconnect between our "shared values and beliefs", the "mutual hostility and distrust" and the "vastly different experiences" have not changed from this country was started, and perhaps have lessened. What you're seeing today, though, is an inability for a white majority to hide within its own comforts while avoiding those difficult realities, thanks to the widespread availability of cameras (smartphones) and an omnipresent platform on which to share those experiences (social media). You're being forced to publically confront these issues; it's not that these issues are new.

09/07/2016 - 1:09pm Punitive cancelation fees

Punitive cancelation fees might be void, but there's nothing wrong with a separate payment of $2,000,000 to cancel an existing contract. That payment functions as a separate, valid contract.

Long time lurker, first time poster (in TCT).

When I was learning to drive in my mom's minivan, I switched lanes in front of an old pickup truck. He must have thought I cut him off (I swear I didn't). Anywho, he ended up speeding up to catch up to us and then threw a handful of rocks at our van. While this story is an unfortunate, all-too-common scenario of road rage, the weirdest part of this story is that the guy HAD A HANDFUL OF ROCKS IN HIS CAR, JUST READY TO BE THROWN?

02/22/2016 - 11:51am Large public school systems

Large public school systems are also NOT a great place for beginning teachers. At Chicago Public Schools for example, there's serious last-in, first-out turnover every single year for young teachers, regardless of competency.

I'm very pro-Beilein and get annoyed by the mob mentality. Five blocks is a great tally. But I really need to see Donnal work on some fundamentals (particularly boxing out, help defense). He's not currently good enough, but I think he will be.
