CORRECTION: The candidates will have two debates after all - they agreed to a second one on Oct. 11.

After both sides agreed not to scab out at a WBZ debate, we're left with just a single mayoral debate, at WGBH's studios on the 10th (and now a second one the next night at Hibernian Hall in Roxbury).
