“Dubya’s Got My Back”, Blair Claims

There was no such thing as a fair fight in my high school. Arguments preceding physical fights almost always involved threats of large groups of people backing up one party in case of the need of assistance. Common examples were complete neighborhoods (“I’ll get Federal Hill after you”) and even whole cities (“All of Pawtucket’s got my back”).

I don’t recall there ever being a full scale fued between the neighborhoods, towns, and cities of the Providence Metropolitan Area that started as a two-teenager scuffle, but still, these threats frequently thwarted actual fights. Because, you never knew when someone’s talk would become more than just hot air…

That’s kinda what this whole IRA thing feels like.
