This afternoon I heard a Virginia student in an NPR interview say that who
or what has his back is God. This was in response to a question about where
kids get their sense of appropriate behavior.

Familar to anyone?  I suppose it may have its roots in "monkey on my back"
or "my mother is on my back" etc.
