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."

The emperor has no clothes. However, some will persist in insisting that his threads are beautiful, regardless of the facts.

So it goes. (Sigh.)


Yeah, if by the emperor you mean Alan Dershowitz and his endless anti-Carter diatribes. I've already gotten into fights with friends regarding the alleged unmasking of Carter as an anti-Semite but I'm not buying. I may not agree with some of his views on the Middle East but these claims don't add up, especially when buttressed by the kind of hysteria Dershowitz is flinging.


It's possible to be a fan of neither Carter or Dershowitz. Living proof, here.

I've made up my own mind about Carter--didn't need Dershowitz's arguments, etc. (And no, I'm not a Carter hater, either from way back or now. But I think he's done a lot to tarnish his integrity, and in ways that count, and not just in terms of the topic at hand.)


Nor am I an uncritical listener to Alan Dershowitz, by a long shot. I hope to hear more of this controversy. It does seem to me that Carter may feel he "owes" his Palestine advocacy to his Arab sponsors. In that sense, he has been bought and is being used as a public-relations tool.
