UPDATE 2: Today a phone call from someone following up on that woman's unanswered emails, and also this blog post, indicate that this Sunday rally is still on for Fair Park -- but at the Hall of State (just a few hundred yards at most from the orginally-scheduled museum. Frankly, there is a lot of chaos going on, and it's because the campaign is just sending in its people from other states, and they are swamped by the huge interest. I gather the unexpected surge of voters is hitting both campaigns. It's a wonderful problem to have.
