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 don't remember where I read it, but there was something about people who had bumper stickers expressing their personal beliefs were more like to consider the road their "own" as they did they vehicles. A place from which to assert their ownership of the road.

Or something like that.

I have owned several cars with, um... greater than average horsepower, and well... yes, you're right. Horsepower corrupts.

And makes driving a lot more fun ;-)


It also increases RPM.


Better IT should hit you than . . . Road rage is simply an extension of the creeping lack of affect that takes over people who dwell in isolated cubicle apartments and are obsessivley possessive about "their space," wherever they have claimed it to be.
