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've never seen "The Apprentice" but must admit to following the latest Donald Trump/Rosie O'Donnell feud thanks to youtube. I don't care what you think of Rosie (and I think her initial comments about the irony of him being the moral compass for 20-year-old women in this country were right on), the Donald is worse than the most immature and nasty bully on the middle school playground. His comments about Rosie O'Donnell's attractiveness, weight ("I want to sue her just so I can take some money out of her big fat ass"), and homosexuality are so appalling, so beyond the pale that it makes me even more sick that some people idolize him. Imagine if he said similar vile comments about someone's race or ethnic background. Oh well, I guess it's perfectly acceptable these days to ridicule overweight lesbians and imply that they are sub-human. Donald Trump is pure slime.

Okay, people, we're clearly going to have to stage an intervention and rescue Annie from smoking that reality TV crack pipe.

Be prepared for Omarosa to disappoint you. She's a whiner [ceiling tile]; and she's a liar [final challenge]. She fluffed up her resume about being an "advisor to President Clinton"--more like an "intern." She's poison and it just so happens that she's the only black woman amid equally fatuous white women.

Beware of those smart peasants: Mother Theresa and Stalin are two examples.


Yeah, when Omarosa complained of a headache during the apartment renovation and then went outside and played basketball with some kids, I kinda had her number.
