    Cathie Black, the former New York City schools chancellor, had a bit of trouble finding her way out of a Hampton’s Bastille Day party: "As she backed out, she practically hit every tree in the driveway," one partygoer tells the New York Post. "One of the guests stopped her and wouldn't let her drive further." Black wasn’t injured, though she managed to dent the car, knock off the mirror, and strip several trees of bark.
