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.

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
