|3 And they're going to take it out on a lot of people,
4 Including your aancient enemies the Broad Streeters,
5 But especially on you,
6 Because they've decided that bunder the surface, the canimal called Man is a Kensingtonian,
7 Which means that the nukes will all get used,
8 Just like you'd use them if you had some in the garage.
9 dWhat's more, they've decided that Kensingtonians never ever change,
10 Because here you are, two hundred years later, and your wife still has a black eye,
11 eWhich is something they can't forgive,
12 And why they don't bother to give you the benefit of the doubt,
13 Or check to see if maybe your front yards aren't a little cleaner than they used to be,
14 Or your Saturday night parties a little less wild,
15 Or your child-beating a little less frequent,
16 Which would be progress, let's face it,
17 But they're not in the mood for talking about progress,
18 fWhen it comes to the race of Kensingtonians,
19 gAnd all the nukes they're going to fire off the next time somebody gets it in the face with a bottle at the corner tavern.
CHAPTER 291 And so now it's every gang for itself,
2 And your chains and switchblades aren't going to be a match for hpolitical caucuses and irights groups and jminority alliances and kaffirmative action programs and lcorporate cartels and mprofessional associations and nold school ties and oorganized religions,
||3 And all the other pinstitutions they've turned into qgangs so that they can have their vengeance on a world they didn't make,
4 And don't like the look of any more.
CHAPTER 301 For you Kensingtonians, this means that following the Way of Harry is the only way you'll rget by,
2 sAnd maybe you think you don't have anything to learn about the Trinity of Desire, Certainty, and Blame,
3 But you're dead wrong about that,
4 Because you're driving a horse and buggy in the jet age,
5 And they've got a lot of tricky new weapons that more than make up for the fact that they still don't have your kind of guts,
6 And probably never will.
7 This means you have a lot to learn about the modern ways of using desire, certainty, and blame,
8 Before all the Harriers eat you alive.
9 You're going to have to learn to express your desires on TV,
10 And to be certain at all times, not just when you're drunk and on fire,
11 And you're going to have to learn how to blame where it counts,
