The University of Mississippi is aflutter with activity today, awaiting the start of the first presidential debate this year, the Daily Mississippian reports. Students and locals have been agonizing for most of the week over McCain's "will he or won't he" appearance status, but campus activities leading up to the event have been running as planned. All the media bigwigs are in town (such as NBC's Brian Williams), and Tom Brokaw took the stage with an Ole Miss professor Thursday to discuss both everything and nothing in front of a sellout crowd.
