Obama rally: don't be late

Friday morning the doors open at 9:30 for the event scheduled to start at 11:45 a.m. Please don't think that you can wander up at noon and flourish your on-line ticket and get in.

It's first come, first in. When the fire marshal says that's it, the doors will not swing open to anyone. The organizers expect most of the audience to be in by 10 a.m., certainly by 11 a.m. There are to be at least three speakers, so expect to be there until 2 or 3 p.m.

This is at the University of Miami's BankUnited Center, once known as the basketball fieldhouse, also as the Convocation Center. It's just off U.S. 1, across from the University Metrorail Station.

If you see an old guy with a big hat in the parking lot giving helpful directions, that might be me.

The event is billed as a Women's Rally for the Change We Need. I'm assured that men also are welcome and do not need to bring lipstick.
