For Adrian Fenty

Who has just lost the mayor’s office to someone who calls Sex and the City his favorite TV show and talks about taking a break from work to go see the new movie alone in a theater. Carrie Bradshaw, please:

“I got to thinking about fate. That crazy concept that we’re not really responsible for the course our lives take. That it’s all predestined, written in the stars. Maybe that explains why, if you live in a city, where you can’t even see the stars, your love life tends to feel a little more random. And even if our every man, every kiss, every heartache, is pre-ordered from some cosmic catalogue, can we still take a wrong step and wander off our own personal milky way? I couldn’t help but wonder, can you make a mistake and miss your fate?”
