Of course college senior Hester Primm was aware that she had a “Permanent Record.” She had been told, as had countless other school kids all their lives, to keep it clean…or suffer some vague future Consequences. Well, who’d’ve thunk that that very same P-R-scam would be pulled on her as a graduating senior in the home stretch? Not Hester, that’s for sure and all for trying to NOT do what she thought was the wrong thing. Go figure…
Trying to work-within-the-system, might-makes-right, and good-guys rush in all collide in this sober-yet-satirical look at campus politics in the 21st century.
On a side note, campus life will probably only get worse.
This one’s not humorous for sure, but still, I hope it’s as enjoyable. Let me know!
Also, none of the characters in QC are recognizable from – or clearly connected to – any of the characters in my other recent stories. Perhaps that will change in the future. 🙂
Finally…I can say some more 🙂 and that’s, “They’re here!”
16 august 2018
Finally got an actual sample on Tuesday the 14th that I could say “Go Ahead” to! (See above.) I’m guesstimating I’ll have the actual patches within 10 days from now. The price will revert back to $7.00 (shipped) each once that happens.
I have been itching to share this design since I first sketched it out, but now that it’s “In Production,” I finally can!
It sure would make a great license plate, as illustrated above (courtesy of Photoshop®) but how perfect will this simple 3” x 2” embroidered Velco-backed patch look on your Politically-Correct campus this Fall?
Or, if college life is wa-a-ay back in the rearview mirror, how ’bout just seeing it in the neighborhood, say on your (burly, martial-arts trained) older-kids’ backpacks for that always memorable First-Day-of-School? And talk about “Sparking a conversation” at the next family reunion or City Council meeting…
I think you can begin to picture the funtimes ahead.
Regardless of the venue, I’m certain you’ll find plenty of folks who’ll agree with the sentiment:
Can’t we just hang the lot of ‘em?
How to Order
All prices include USA shipping! (OnceI have the patches in hand and they’re ready-to-ship shipping, so for new orders the price is will go back to$7.00 each, shipped.) See the specially-priced “USA – EKG” HERE that’s noted in the order form below.
They’re here and I’ve started shipping out the first paid orders!
USA-EKG is my first foray into the battle of the embroidered “morale patch.” It’s going into production……as we speak, so to speak.Link HERE to get the details and find and use the contact-form to request yours.
Order a t-shirt and get $2.00 off a patch by noting, “I just ordered a t-shirt so give me the SPECIAL Patch Price” in the USA-EKG’s Special Request area!
About time to declare, “Mission Accomplished,” eh, girls?
See, I’m not just about making firearms’ related designs…
(I created this design and then made-a-t-shirt for an internet friend four-and-a-half years ago, after he used the phrase on a YouTube ‘cast and it popped into my mind. Was inspired to bring it out of mothballs, today, when Terrence Popp nearly used the very same phrasing in THIS video.)
I think Orwell is awaiting the day that all these 21st century-NAZIs – I mean, of course, the arresting officers and judges, in this case – show up in the afterworld so he can thrash them to death a second time.
Encapsulated in this graphic design is today’s tragic story along with the even more tragic event from the past. Uber will likely “pay up,” whereas murderer Ted Kennedy NEVER received the punishment he was due.
NOTE: Kennedy’s cold-blooded abandonment/murder of the beautiful Mary Jo Kopechne is a poignant moment in my post-2016-election novella, “An Election Carol.” The book’s lovely co-star (Emjay) is meant to a be a tribute to her, one of countless lives-cut-short by the Evil in this world.
