So: I'm en route to Mississippi right now, for a panel discussion about science and the election that is to precede the first of three presidential debates, scheduled to be held on the Ole Miss campus September 26. Our panel tomorrow is noteworthy because in some sense, it may be the closest we come to having an actual science debate during this campaign season--as I explain in my latest Science Progress column. I'm very glad that Obama and McCain answered ScienceDebate2008's questions. I don't think it's nearly enough, though.
