I live in a high-rise in downtown Chicago, and I park my car on the third floor. There's an office (really more of a ballroom) called "The Wright
Institute for Lifelong Learning" that I walk past, sometimes at odd hours of the night.
Every time I go by this place, it seems like something weird is going on. Everybody is dressed in business attire, yet there are candles burning at

Has anybody had any experiences with this group? I see the 'clients' on smoke breaks outside sometimes - they seem like nice people that are being
taken for a ride. There's always a chance that this place is legit too...
