So, as you're aware, this happened:

"This was a crisis that was fostered and boosted by the irrational behaviour of people who were white and blue-eyed, who before the crisis they looked like they knew everything about economics, but now have demonstrated they know nothing about economics," President Lula da Silva of Brazil said, mocking the "gods of wisdom" who had had to be bailed out. "The part of humanity that is responsible should be the part that pays for the crisis," he added.

Which is cool, we're all for laying blame, 'cause it feels good, but let's get specific, and compile some data. So far, the following info has been compiled:

Alan Greenspan - Brown eyes
Sandy Weill - Brown eyes
Phil Gramm - Brown eyes
Joe Cassano - Brown eyes
Robert Rubin - Brown eyes
Christopher Cox - Brown eyes
Angelo Mozillo - Brown eyes
John Thain - Brown eyes
Henry Paulson - Hazel eyes
Dick Fuld - Brown eyes
Ken Lewis - Hazel eyes

The rest falls to you. Surely among the Dealbreaker audience there must be at least a handful of people who've gazed lovingly into the eyes of Chuck Prince.
