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 sounds like what it would be like to die of thirst in the desert.

Not that I'm defending death by thirst, but experiencing it in a temperature-controlled hospital room has got to be different than in a broiling desert sun.


Thank you Ambivabro for a breath of sanity in the vast wasteland of this debate (no offense Amba--not a wasteland particularly here, just everywhere).
I do not think any of us can possibly imagine what it is like for a woman in that condition to die of thirst or anything else. Frankly, if we were a truly humane society, she would be given morphine or other drugs to hasten death, rather than just being removed from life support. The whole thing makes me ashamed of my species. Next life I'm going to be a cat or maybe a gerbil.


From todays' L.A. Times:

The Schindlers' lawyer, David C. Gibbs III, said they were watching her "skin crack, her nose bleed." He said Schiavo was having "pangs of hunger and thirst."

The first sentence is an observation, the second, an inference.


I thought of something I read hear a few months ago.....If the Government wanted to remove her feeding tube then the Left would be against it...

I read that 7 of 8 of her Doctors felt that she was beyond that is good enough for me to sleep at night.
