      Weekly Free Speech Forum Opens 

      The College of Complexes, a weekly free speech forum on social issues and current events, will be holding its first weekly meeting in Dallas

      Saturday, February 28th, at 6:00 PM, at the Circle Grill Restaurant
      3701 North Buckner, Dallas, Texas.
      The College, which is subtitled “The Playground for People Who Think,” will feature a special guest speaker on a topic for which they have passion each and every week, followed by a period for questions from the audience. Then everyone in attendance will be afforded time at the podium to speak during the “Rebuttal / Remarks” segment of the program. The speaker is afforded an opportunity at the end to respond to the comments. So as to maintain some semblance of order, the college enforces its rule of listening to “Only One Fool at a Time.”
      Tuition is $3.00 to help defray costs, with a request by the restaurant for a $5.00 food or drink purchase. The College maintains no membership, is volunteer operated, and all meetings are open to the public. No reservations are required.. The Circle Grill Restaurant is located at the intersection of Buckner and Highway 30, in the Northwest Quadrant. Free Parking and bus service is available.
      The original College of Complexes was established in Chicago, IL in 1951, and has been meeting weekly continuously since that time, claiming to “solve all the world’s problems.” The name is derived from a psychiatric condition in which a person withholds from their own conscioussness  emotionally loaded associations that he or she disapproves of.  Thus, the College of Complexes is the place to hear or express repressed ideas.  Speakers must advance a point of view, or take a position on an issue. Lectures on topics are discouraged, since “the college is not a classroom.” It recently celebrated its 3,000th meeting.

      The Dallas campus will begin on February 28th by presenting Dr. Rick Halperin, of the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty,

      “Should Texas Abolish the Death Penalty?”

      This will be followed on March 7th, with a program featuring T.G. Barrett, who will speak on “What is Our Best Path to a Sustainable Energy Future?” Anyone who would like to speak should contact the Program Coordinator Tom Berry at 214-321-6222. 773-577-1970 [cell], or tmichaelberry@... If you have a passion you want to present, the next open date is March 14th. Additional information is available at the college’s website: www.collegeofcomplexes.org/2.html
