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."

....saw the possibility that a nuclear-armed Islamist world will turn on and destroy itself, Shi'a against Sunni.

This would be a good thing if only it wouldn't spread outside the ummah. Trouble is, we have them here now, and they can do horrific damage with nukes inside our country.

There is no clear best choice how to deal with the mad mullahs.


Perhaps the "Blue Prince" has arrived.


FYI: Juan Cole and the Seattle PI say the Al Sadr contingent in Iraq is pledging to support the government in Iran should the US decide to attack.

How that would manifest itself? Hard to say for sure. But Al Sadr's group has 21 seats in the new parliament.

What a mess.

Rick writes in response to my query "Who's the Blue Prince?"

The "blue prince" was predicted, in the middle ages, by Nostradamus (if you will!). He spoke of a mad man from the middle east (maybe Persia) with advanced weapons which he could deliver anywhere. A target was mentioned as the "new city" whic everyone thought was NYC. Perhaps it was the "new country" - Nostradamus often made typo's.
