Somebody to Blame.
Several young men in their cups were cavorting on a Portland, Oregon, Tri-Met train platform as the train moved into the station. By chance, one of the young men slipped between the rails of the train and, by the most amazing chance, was not injured by the train that passed over him. The television commentator, speaking of the matter, said that "...the Tri-Met driver was not at fault." This clearly demonstrates how desperate we are to find somebody at fault for every untoward event.
