Only faces can be blamed. A face is the blameworthy object, par excellence.

There are truly blameworthy faces. The faces of men and women who find themselves in power and charged with decisions that deeply affect people's lives.

There are faces that are held up for blame. Fat faces, indulgent faces, lazy faces, black faces, female faces.

Sometimes people get confused about which face to blame. Nazis blame Jews and immigrants. Protestors blame nazis, regardless of how powerless they may be.

Most people blame the faces close to them, the faces they see everyday. And ruin their own lives for want of a face to blame.

Be careful whom you blame. Most importantly, look in the mirror every once in a while. Really look.
