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."

Great post, Amba. I have so many opinions about this I dare not write one of them! Thanks.


I've seen those tip jars. I had no idea people expected to be paid to blog. And from readers!

I was one of the commenters at Althouse. My take is this - if anyone - anyone - feels that they need or want money to blog, write or do anything else on the internet it is very easy. Just make your site membership only and let's see what happens. I think most of us would agree that total hits would decrease by 99%. Note that lots of big blogs as you mentioned have blogads and we can see some income stream from that. To rattle the tip jar to me sounds desperate and rather lame. We all know the tip jar is there and all know how to hit it and will - if we want.
