The Texas Freedom Network's expecting a packed house tonight, when Jim Wallis pops in to the Wilshire Baptist Church on Abrams Road as part of the TFN's Faith and Freedom Speaker Series. Wallis -- president and executive director of Sojourners, author of the bestselling God’s Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn’t Get It and frequent TV talking head -- will go on at 7 p.m.
In an e-mail this morning, TFN says it has already pre-registered nearly 1,000 folks, which is capacity -- and impressive to boot, never mind its being free and open to anyone. But you can check here to see if there's still room. --Robert Wilonsky

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
