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."

Members of Congress not only vote on foreign aid (including for Bangladesh) and trade relations. They also, at least potentially, could be voting on steps to combat global warming.

So what? Well if global warming results in a rising sea level, as it seems to be doing, the country impacted first and most, due to being at most a few feet above sea level, will be . . . Bangladesh. Now admittedly Congress has not been rushing to address the issue of global warming. But if Bangladesh expects/wants them to, giving a little thought to how the members will likely react to their opinions being ignored might be in order.

Dropping these trumped-up charges may not encourage Congress to act on an issue of major importance to Bangladesh. But going forward with them will certainly have a negative effect.


Superb idea, WJ. (A kind of slow-motion waterboarding of an entire nation??)
