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 a truly inspiring tradition.

But is there no difference between retribution and information seeking? (specifically, information that could save lives - there could be no other justification)

Whiel I understand your worry about torture, it seems interesting that you would go back as far as George Washington for a relevant quote as to why its not ok to torture someone. George Washington was a slave owning torturer..was he not? If a justifiable political system should be free of violence and cruelty, we need to start taking stock of our own political history and asking ourselves why it is, that our Presidents are simply allowed to offer official apologies for the wrongdoings of our nation, while other leaders must suffer deposition and humiliation. Torture is never ok, but you cant start off with a rotten apple and expect it to taste good...
