“You can think of death bitterly or with resignation, as a tragic interruption of your life, and take every possible measure to postpone it. Or, more realistically, you can think of life as an interruption of an eternity of personal nonexistence, and seize it as a brief opportunity to observe and interact with the living, ever-surprising world around us.”
–From Barbara Ehrenreich’s “Natural Causes,” 2018.

OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE BOARD MEETS: The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine will meet in Hillsborough County. (Friday, 9 a.m., Embassy Suites Tampa USF, 3705 Spectrum Blvd., Tampa.)
‘MARSY’S LAW’ MEASURE DEBATED: Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers will hear arguments about a proposed constitutional amendment aimed at expanding crime victims’ rights. The Florida Constitution Revision Commission this year approved putting the proposal, designated as Amendment 6, on the November ballot. Supporters of the proposal, which has become commonly known as “Marsy’s Law,” argue it would establish a series of rights for crime victims, including the right to be notified of major developments in criminal cases and the right to be heard in the legal proceedings. The amendment also would increase the mandatory retirement age for judges from 70 to 75. And it would provide that judges should not necessarily defer to the interpretation of laws and rules by governmental agencies in legal proceedings. But Southwest Florida defense attorney Lee Hollander filed a lawsuit challenging the measure, arguing that its wording would mislead voters. (Friday, 1 p.m., Leon County Courthouse, 301 South Monroe St., Tallahassee.)
CAMPAIGN FINANCE REPORTS DUE: State candidates, political committees and parties face a Friday deadline for filing reports showing finance activity through Aug. 23.
