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."

You are definitely right about The Siege. I remember seeing that movie and when 9/11 actually happening somehow, in my Hollywood programmed brain, just expecting everything to happen just as in that movie. I expected martial law, I expected the Constitution to be shredded, the internment camps. Then it didn't happen (whatever insane anti-Bush types want to allege about civil liberties, I always think it could be worse).

It was that aspect of 9/11 that really amazed me, how America got more timid, but never did we go through a freakish reaction of the like at home. Though I would say the torture parts of that movie are interesting in the context of Iraq.
