I also read Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs and the first few chapters were great but then I lost interest. You have to check out "Killing Yourself to Live", though by Klosterman... Dave Drury suggested it and its one of my favorites now. Safe Travels!

I loved 'Killing' as well. You might be interested in the religion chapter in Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs (the last chapter). Anyway, peace brother!!
