Do you recognize this short story?

Prompted by the recent Harlan Ellison thread I was reminded of a short story which I think was his in which a depressed and suicidal man freaks out an armed carjacker by threatening to kill him in an accident and leaves him trembling on the median. It was called something like "The More Dangerous Weapon". Google-fu is getting me to nowheresville. Can anyone help? Maybe it's not Ellison...

How to help a person to see the better side(s) of life?

I have been with my girlfriend for what will be 4 months total as of October 4th. Still feels like the “honeymoon” period. Though, neither of us have had the best lives, so meeting each other was a blessing to say the least. Life changing in a lot of ways. The only issue that seems to ever come up doesn't even directly relate to us or our relationship. It's her one friend of 3 years. [more inside]

Why do some people end sentences in "with"?

Why do people say, "Can I come with" and "Do you want to go with"? That "with" hanging on the end of that sentence has always driven me crazy. I heard it twice last night on television. Isn't there supposed to be a noun or pronoun following that preposition? Is ending a sentence this way a regional thing? If it's grammatically acceptable, then why does it sound so utterly awkward to my ear?

Help, please. I cannot get any page at all at Twitter to load -- it just kicks me back to whatever page I was on previously. This started exactly when I installed the latests AOL Aim program on 9.15.

Starting my own arts non-profit: how nutty?

My adult life has been split between art (performing arts) and non-profit administration (major donor fundraising). I'm now approaching a point where I want to merge the two and create my own arts nonprofit. My intent is to start small. I guess I'm hoping to split half my time as a fundraiser/grantwriter/administrator and half my time running the program. Am I crazy? I dont think this thing will officially launch before the next year or two, so please pretend this will happen in a decent economy. I think I have a good service to provide, access to strong potential boardmembers, etc. Thanks, hive.
