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."

Wow, eh?

I have no idea what this is supposed to mean. If anything.

Very poetic...but also just as dismissive of the ones who do not "feel" god as it claims we are of those who do...

Frankly the main problem I have with religious types is that they're not usually willing to sit at home and pray in decent privacy. No, instead they decide that their religiously mandated beliefs and values *must* become universal, and do whatever they can to convince, cajole, or force everyone else to comply.

What's worst is when they go to places like Africa and South America and push their beliefs onto uneducated primitives who are effectively captive audiences with no competing education to counteract the religious programming to which they are being subjected.

I know this is kind of off-topic, but it pushed a button ;)
