There was an old show that had the burning question, “Inquiring Minds want to Know.” It was mostly a gossip show about famous people and what were considered movie stars during the era. Of course, today, there are countless shows about celebrities, and they are no longer referred to as movie stars.  As you stand in any grocery line, in almost any country, you are greeted with gossip magazines because after all inquiring minds want to know the latest in famous people’s lives.  Are their lives so boring that they need these magazines?  Of course, now, as the media in the U.S. hates President Trump, there is continual articles about him and as much gossip as is available.  Inquiring minds really don’t need to know what people do in their private lives.  Even all the blogs I have written about the teachers in the school system, why are their inquiring minds so involved with food?  Isn’t school supposed to educate children?  Do you know that the school system in many countries is deteriorating because they are not spending the appropriate amount of time teaching and educating the students? They can find the time to confiscate lunches but not to give the children the education they deserve.  There is nothing wrong with being inquisitive.  However, some people go too far.  They border on just plain nosiness.  The phrase, “I was just curious” says it all.  They aren’t just curious, their inquiring minds want every piece of data, possible future gossip, or the satisfaction of somehow knowing a person’s mistake or error.  That type of person does tend to gossip and often use it against the individual who foolishly answered their questions. Inquiring minds are ideal at the library.  There is an enormous opportunity to discover history, general knowledge, and specific areas of study.  The opportunities are endless. In the Good Gus Series, book seven, “The New Library” is the beginning of real knowledge for all the inquiring minds to the town of Pecos.  The series is available exclusively on Kindle worldwide.  If inquiring minds are annoying you while you juggle everything in life, ignore them, find a quiet spot and read “Misplaced Trust.”  It is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd and Tolino.  Remember the date, anyone in the Cotuit area of Massachusetts, May 13, 2017; 10:30 a.m. for the children and 1:30 p.m. for the adults.  Looking forward to meeting local fans!
