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."

That is terrific - particularly the last piece. Although I think Haidt and Hersh fail to follow their own advice when they write:

It has always struggled to grant independence and autonomy to individuals within a society that believes strongly in Christianity and in some elements of Puritanism…

I detect a whiff of partisanship here.


Gonna use this in my talk tonight at Village Books in Bellingham, WA -- because this, in part, is what the Shema prayer might be about . . .


I hope you'll let us in on that reasoning afterwards . . . tomorrow.


Fantastic post (as with pretty much everything you have mentioned recently). This is pretty much the only blog I read regularly where I feel unworthy of commenting, please keep it up.


Good heavens! Please comment.
