Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“Monday, October 10 [1983]. Columbus Day. In the morning at Camp D. I ran the tape of the movie ABC is running on the air Nov. 20. It’s called “The Day After.” It has Lawrence, Kansas wiped out in a nuclear war with Russia. It is powerfully done–all $7 mil. worth. It’s very effective & left me greatly depressed. So far they haven’t sold any of the 25 spot ads scheduled & I can see why. Whether it will be of help to the ‘anti nukes’ or not, I can’t say. My own reaction was one of our having to do all we can to have a deterrent & to see there is never a nuclear war. Back to W.H.”

–Ronald Reagan, from The Reagan Diaries.

Chamber Education Summit: State education, business and non-profit leaders are expected to gather for a two-day “Learners to Earners Education Summit” hosted by the Florida Chamber Foundation. Tuesday’s speakers are expected to include Hershel Lyons, chancellor of K-12 public schools at the Florida Department of Education. (11:30 a.m., Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Hotel, 1 Grand Cypress Blvd., Orlando.)

FSU Game Day Guns Case: The 1st District Court of Appeal is scheduled to hear arguments in a dispute that started after Florida State University included gun-related information in a 2015 football “game day” guide for fans. The Second Amendment group Florida Carry and Bekah Hargrove, executive director of Florida Students for Concealed Carry, filed a lawsuit because the FSU football “Game Day Plan 2015,” a 28-page information packet sent out by campus police, advised visitors that firearms couldn’t be stored in vehicles parked on campus. Florida Carry and Hargrove argued the guide failed to follow a 2013 appeals-court ruling that said the University of North Florida could not prevent firearms from being stowed in cars. After Florida Carry filed the lawsuit, FSU updated the guide and acknowledged the information hadn’t been changed earlier to reflect the 2013 ruling. A Leon County judge ruled against Florida Carry, saying the issue became moot when FSU updated the guide. (2 p.m., 1st District Court of Appeal, 2000 Drayton Dr., Tallahassee.)
