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."

So the Web changes how one's mind works, and makes one unable to sit thru something long and planned?

And yet, for many years people have proven capable of spending some time at social events where they engage in conversations with lots of give and take (not unlike commenting on blogs or surfing the web). And yet could spend hours sitting and reading long (and, in the best cases, well planned) novels.

Perhaps Ms. Althouse does not have such experiences in her background. But I somehow suspect that you do.

What a load of old nonsense

Yes, you can concretize your mind, but, you can also increase your neurons millions fold by taking advantage of the diversity about everything, still having time to read that good book, sip your wine and/or make love.

Everything is what we, as individual's make it. Many have choices, others not. I love the Internet and blogs for the diversity it brings me from science, fun, political and new.I also appreciate by own personal blog which no reads but me. But, who cares!

Well, sharinlite, if you were willing to share your URL, some of us would take a look! And we might even add a few neurons, thanks to you.

Blogging also has its responsible side: you feel an obligation to inform yourself before sounding off about something....

Okay, this is completely antithetical to the concept of blogging.

I mean, if people waited until they were informed, how would this beautiful post have ever been created?

OK, so some of us old-fashioned types with vestigial journalistic consciences, like appendixes, feel that obligation.

LOL. A classic!! Is your (unintentional) double post an hommage? In that case I shall not remove it!

Icepick

It wasn't an homage. But when I realized I had done it, it reminded me of the other one.
