Jon Stewart's 'Rally To Restore Sanity' Heads To L.A.'s MacArthur Park

Jon Stewart's "Rally To Restore Sanity" is back on schedule at a location not far from the Pershing Square site originally chosen by organizers: MacArthur Park in the Westlake District near downtown

The 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. event will happen Oct. 30 at Levitt Pavilion, according to the event's Facebook page.

Jon Stewart will rally in L.A.'s inner-city after all.
