Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

I (beg to) differ: Existence is as far from a wimpy word as it, and one, can get.

I hate to be a nitpicker but the correct word would be “anthropodicy&148;. Macaronics are a pet peeve of mine. Silly, I know.


I had to stop and figure out what "macaronics" were, and than I went, aha!! Mixing Latin and Greek roots! Right?

Dave Schuler

Yeah. Sort of the occupational hazard of a polyglot. A petty thing but mine own.

I kvetched at Rudy Rummel on the same grounds for his “democide” from Greek demos, people, and Latin occidere, to slay. Arrggh.


But there should be a better word for it. Something like "macaroniakis."
