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."

This was incredibly insightful and shrewd on Salazar's part.

Conservatives have practiced "divide and conquer" politics against liberals for quite some time now. It's interesting to watch the shoe dangle from the other foot.

I honestly don't know what to make of Ratzinger. I do think that Relativism has a tendency to become kind of an absolutism in itself, and despite my very different political beliefs I found myself welcoming his words. Solidarity is impossible without shared truth, and I for one am tired of living in such a divided world.

But frankly, he seems like quite the absolutist himself, and I get the impression he didn't learn a damn thing growing up in Nazi Germany. He comes dangerously close to regarding the Catholic Church as infallible -- amazing, for an institution that has some many failures under its belt. He reminds me of the friendly evangelical lady who comes to my store and assures me that she has nothing but respect for me, supports Israel, and then gives me Jews for Jesus brochures.
