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."

>>Read it all, it's on target, and it raises the question of why last night's fantasies were so very dark and apocalyptic. <<

Because, based on the force and projected path of the storm, taken in context with years of study by civil engineers, meteorologists, and city planners, apocalyptic was what could reasonably be expected. The horror on the Gulf Coast is still unfolding, and will be plenty full of dark horror by the time all is said and done. Don't go blaming the media for overhyping this one, because in the end, we will have seen nothing like it on our shores before.
