You must never mess with fate or try to manage destiny. You must never mess with fate or try to manage destiny. You must never mess with fate, or try to manage destiny. How many times can you say the same thing over and over and over? If you've got 2 1/2 hours to kill, you could actually tally it up during "Annie Maye's Child," the second in the Bushfire Theatre of the Performing Arts' trilogy of plays by African-American women. A world premiere, the play is an ode to Greek tragedy.

Is Israel trying to help Hamas? Is Jerusalem trying to undermine its strategic position in the Middle East? One can't help asking such questions after Israel's botched attack on a civilian aid flotilla bound for Gaza, which killed several Turkish citizens. Who but Hamas could benefit from an Israeli military raid on an international convoy that was clearly not running guns? The most troubling question: Did Israeli officials never consider the consequences of attacking a Turkish vessel with Turkish nationals aboard?

Like Christmas sales and shortened days, the Army-Navy game is an early December fixture. The colorful event, to be contested for the 109th time this afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, has been played in all but five of the last 100 Decembers. World War I canceled it in 1917 and 1918. The 1928 and 1929 games never took place because of institutional disagreements over eligibility rules. In each of those cases, however, it was understood that the annual football meeting of military academies one day would be resumed.

Matthew Kisielewski can't explain his good fortune, and he doesn't need to. He's living it. "It's a miracle, I guess," says Kisielewski, whose potentially fatal illness was diagnosed thanks to a chance encounter with his best friend's mother and a Cooper University Hospital neurosurgeon. Talk about right place, right time. The 20-year-old Runnemede resident, who played football for Triton Regional High School, was unaware of the benign tumor growing on his pituitary gland.

NEW YORK - A laid-off women's accessories designer shot a former co-worker to death in front of the Empire State Building, authorities said, causing a chaotic showdown with police Friday in front of one of the world's best-known landmarks. Police killed the suspect, and at least nine others were wounded, some possibly by police gunfire, city officials said. Some of the wounded were grazed by bullets and others hit directly, but all were expected to survive, officials said. The gunshots rang out on the Fifth Avenue side of the building about 9 a.m., a time of day when the sidewalks around the building are packed with pedestrians, and merchants were opening their shops.

THE WORST moment Monday night was when grief-fueled residents, filled with frustration and false information, blocked Ladder 4 from leaving the fire station near 65th and Woodland. They potentially put other neighbors' lives at risk. Cops had to break it up. Things got ugly. Neighbors blockading a firehouse was new to me. Police districts, yes. City Council district offices, sure. City Hall, of course. But a firehouse ? That was the worst moment Monday night.
