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."

In recent days, I've had a rising sense of foreboding that eventually, Mr. Sharon's condition could become an internationally-observed test case of the so-called "right to die." What a lethal mix of cultures, religions, customs, and geopolitics that would be!

I pray that he will soon awaken and be able to live something like a normal life. But events don't seem to be unfolding in that way. It's terribly sad.

People do emerge from comas, and hope should not be given up. However, what works against Sharon is his age and, I've heard, poor physical condition (he was obviously overweight, under stress, and -- unknown -- perhaps suffering from high blood pressure or diabetes or other complications of being 77, overweight, out of shape and overstressed).
