“I was in the Hollywood DMV: people were faintin from exhaustion after waitin in line for days, and little robots, which look like vacuum cleaners with pseudo-human-like appendages and little smiley faces painted on their control panels, motored over and stole the purses and wallets from the fallen customers. The, uh, robots were marked or identified by this word printed on their metallic sides: Govmint -- Ivanka, California needs less govmint.”
"The Sioux revolt against the Dakota Access Pipeline was one of those breathtakin statements about life that I enjoy. I savor those nuances by unrestrained architects, love the people that build and live in those edifices of surprise, uh, billowin free speech, challengin the barricades, shakin their fists and yellin out loud, lovin their tenuous perch on life, even upon that sheer rock face of survival, taunted and persecuted by gravity."

A carbuncle is a roiled mass of skin or a beautiful gem. The incredible gem is pictured in the logo below and at the bottom of the short story section...
Kevin O'Kendley is the owner of Carbuncle Moon, and the author of all original material -- cartoons, blogs, shorts, essays, articles -- on the website (there has been a very limited editorial input in some of my work). All quoted sources are noted. I am responsible for all posts. The only blogs not time-dated are those advertising nonprofits. All nonprofits are vetted, investigated, though after the summer of 2018 my vetting has lapsed: (6/1/21).
