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."

Yes,I do think she was kidding. However, it demonstrates why we "reality-based" types may find the Sumerian School (if I can grace it with that name) far more appealing than ID. It is a nice, straight-forward, testable-at least potentially-proposition. ID, in contrast, is much more amorphous and elusive and full of strange political potential. As with so many other belief systems, I find myself asking "Is this too subtle, complex and nuanced for me to bend my mind around, or is it just a fraud?" As the first choice is unacceptable to the well regulated psyche, I of course go with the second.
