Learning About and From Latin America  
3 Programs Open to the Public  
The College of Complexes, The Playground for People Who Think, will be presenting three (3) programs on Latin American, on September 9, September 23, and October 7th, each two weeks apart. The first program will present a background or historical perspective, followed by one pro, and one con, concerning the current political and economic situation. The programs are intended to improve the general level of conversation concerning individuals such as Fidel Castro of Cuba, and Hugo Chevez, President of Venezuela, who offered CTA diesel fuel at a 40% discount, a savings of $15 million, on condition that low-income families get discounted or free transit cards.  
The programs are: Sept. 9th Latin American – History and Analysis of the Region -  
based upon the speaker’s recent tour of the region  
J. Quinn Brisben  
Sept 23rd Che, Castro and Chavez: The Myth of the Revolutionary -  
myths and realities of Socialism’s last three icons  
Michel Flores  
Oct. 7th Learning from Latin America – lessons for the USA in  
regard to mass transit, public housing, and even developing business enterprises
