Fate's Dartboard

I get the impression that hanging on a wall in the suite of offices Olympus Properties leases to the Fates, there is a dartboard divided into wedges of varying size, each labeled with the name of a country. The only one you can read easily from the oche occupies nearly a quarter of the board: "Haiti." It's got a lot of marked darts in it, too, none of them describing happy news.

A cursory glance made me read "Fart's dateboard". I did a double take, and thanked the fates that my eyes had deceived me.

All I can do is pray for them. My resources are such, at present, that prayer is all I have to spare.

Another earthquake yesterday a few hunder miles south of them. The area is still alive with ancient forces fighting amongst themselves. It's not good news for anyone.
