### Python version of simple Markov chain

Here is Python code to generate a simple Markov chain. The first part is what we were given for the Deonier example. The second part is mainly a utility function to simulate what R's "sample" does, choose an item randomly from a sequence, based on a frequency distribution. The third part constructs the model and tests it.
