Barack Obama's campaign has, at long last, announced the time and place for his Wednesday shindig in downtown Dallas: It'll take place at 11:30 a.m. at Reunion Arena, with doors opening at 10:30 a.m. Seems his local folks' wishes were granted: Told you this morning they were hoping for a big event rather than the town hall-style meet-and-greet -- because a smaller event at a more intimate venue would have required tickets. This one's a first-come, first-served free-for-all -- and, ya know, it's just nice to see someone's getting some use outta the all-but-neglected Reunion Arena, which of late has played host to things like "Monster Jam" and "Stream Energy Event." --Robert Wilonsky
