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."

I bet you can hardly wait until he's seasoned enough to be a more credible candidate so you can vote for him.

Now what on earth are you going to do if the Republicans dig up an equally rational candidate at that time. Imagine - real choice!


I'd sure love to have that problem. I'm so used to having the opposite problem.

I also have this reflex from the '60s, which is, Don't get too enthusiastic about any politician -- he'll be assassinated.

Don't get too enthusiastic about any politician -- he'll be assassinated.

As one who wasn't alive back then, I often wonder why so many people complain about the present-day partisanship.

Sure, things seem pretty heated at times - but was it really better before? At least no one's getting assassinated nowadays.
