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."

where my h/t at?!

I wuzzl't finished.


Ironic that that messianic erasure of tribalism required the wholesale annihilation of other tribes upon entering the land (we read the list in this week's Torah portion: the Girgashites, the Emorites, the Perizites, the Canaanites... give them no quarter, spare no one).

Can it be that, to eradicate tribalism, you have to eradicate tribes that exemplify it...?

Fascinating post, amba. Don't get many this good in this medium as it lends itself too well to fly-by thoughts on the topic du jour. Lots of food for thought and I'm savoring it.

it's the reason leftists hate the U.S. and Israel: they have power,

Stop right there!

Israel, and now the US, doesn't have as much unlimited power as you "homies" seem to think.

You speak for others instead of listening, or letting them speak in their own words. You think you have all the answers then are surprised -- over and over and over -- when you fail.

Israel has never stood on her own and been tested. Her independence is bought and paid for by others. The country was built, the desert bloomed by hired hands.

We dislike Israeli policies becasue they are weak and they don't know it yet, and they tend to bring the rest of the world into the continual crises' of their people.

Maybe learn to stand on your own two feet, take care of your own, and you'll have less time to think so highly of yourselves.

Enjoy the view from the peak; I suspect it won't be a long-term view -- very little in Jewish culture seems to have any staying power.

I think a lot of Jewish people/Israel's position in the world is due to concession won because of the holocaust.

But you can only play the victim card so long, and honest sympathy wears thin.

Hi, Mary. So nice to have you and your familiar views and writing style back under yet another name.

"Very little in Jewish culture seems to have any staying power." Um, they had to drag the Ten Commandments off some lawn in Alabama ... first five books of every Christian Bible ... LOLOL.
