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 guess this guy would prefer it if everyone would just chuck their own critical thinking and took the MSM as gospel truth...that would increase his power and pay check. The cut-and-paste-blogs, to use his derogatory categorization, are primarily an extension of what any good reader of news, books, etc. does, which is to be actively engaged with what you read. Would he have the same thing to say about marginalia scrawled in books by astute readers?

In addition, the best blogs in whatever category or of whatever type are very original.

And finally, this guy comes off sounding very elitist: anything that the average citizen can do on the cheap, and outside the MSM = something bad. Knitters beware, you may soon be in for a verbal lashing by Josh Levin.

One thing the MSM, and Josh Levin, has over bloggers -- copy editors. That, or blogging software needs an option for editing comments. Quick comment = typos. Already found two in my comments above. Oh, well.
