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."

That is marvelous!


I think our brains are bored with our bodies and would rather mate with computers which seem closer to "us."


Asocial, or more selectively social? No matter how narrow our interests, we are more likely to find a fellow enthusiast on-line than IRL. So do we spend less time listening to others natter on about what we find boring simply because those are the only people in our community? I see where our tolerance declines, but not necessarily our socialization.
