Blame Who sees the hand at work in the mess made of life and planet? A man labours in mine or field or lab never seeing his work connected to the dying face upon his television screen. The gun that shot the helpless victim just left his shop a month ago: should he be held responsible when he must feed his family? What do we do with the teen who used the gun and shot his friend over a pair of running shoes? Whom do we blame now? Was it the man who made the gun? Was it the foolish, greedy teen? Was it the TV commercial? Was it the shoe factory in Hong Kong? Was it just the gun after all? There has to be someone to blame! Someone to jail, someone to hang! Someone must pay or the piper won’t play!
