Let's admit it, not many of us are going to miss the Presidential Debates this year with The Donald and Hillary! So, I thought this would be a great feature for those in Dallas.  Yes, Dallas is big and it may be a field trip for those not living in University Park or Highland Park, but it may be worth the haul to SMU for this event!
