“This year has been exhausting in so many ways, asking us to accept more than it seems we can, more than it seems should be possible. But really, in the end, today’s harsh realities are not all that surprising for some of us — for people of color, or for people from marginalized communities — who have long since given up on being shocked or dismayed by the news, by what this or that administration will allow, what this or that police department will excuse, who will be exonerated, what this or that fellow American is willing to let be, either by contribution or complicity. All this is done in the name of white supremacy under the guise of patriotism and conservatism, to keep things as they are, favoring white people over every other citizen, because where’s the incentive to give up privilege if you have it?”
–From Tommy Orange’s review of Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah’s “Friday Black,” in the New York Times Book Review, Nov. 4, 2018.

In Florida and in State Government:
Note: Some proceedings below can be followed live on the Florida Channel. Most legislative proceedings can be followed through the Senate or House websites.
NURSING HOME RECORDS CASE ARGUED: The 1st District Court of Appeal will hear arguments in a public-records dispute between the Florida Department of Health and a Broward County nursing home where residents died after Hurricane Irma in 2017. Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis this spring ordered the department to turn over thousands of death certificates to The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills. That came after the nursing home filed a lawsuit in January alleging that the department had improperly refused to provide copies of death certificates for people across the state from Sept. 9, 2017, through Sept. 16, 2017 — a period that included Hurricane Irma and its immediate aftermath. An attorney for the nursing home indicated during a hearing before Lewis that the facility is seeking the addresses of locations where other people died during and after the massive storm. Lewis agreed with the facility that the death certificates should be released. The legal fights are rooted in the nursing home’s loss of its air-conditioning system Sept. 10, 2017, as Hurricane Irma pounded the state. The outage created sweltering conditions that resulted in the facility being evacuated Sept. 13, and authorities have attributed resident deaths to the problems at the home. The state suspended the nursing home’s license to operate and has moved to revoke the license. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., 1st District Court of Appeal, 2000 Drayton Dr., Tallahassee.)
DESANTIS, GILLUM HOLD ELECTION NIGHT PARTIES: Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis will hold an election-night party in Orlando, while Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum will hold a party at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee. (Tuesday, DeSantis party starts at 6 p.m., The Rosen Centre, 9840 International Dr., Orlando. Full details of the Gillum party had not been released as of Friday.)
SODERBERG TO HOLD ELECTION PARTY: Nancy Soderberg, the Democratic candidate in Congressional District 6, will hold an election-night party in Volusia County. Soderberg and Republican Michael Waltz are running to succeed former Congressman Ron DeSantis, who resigned from the seat last month as he runs for governor. (Tuesday, 7 p.m., Rock Bottom Brewery, 1864 Victory Circle, Building K, Daytona Beach.)
AMENDMENT 4 BACKERS GATHER IN ORLANDO: The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition will host an election-night party in Orange County. The group has led efforts to pass a proposed constitutional amendment, known as Amendment 4, that would automatically restore the voting rights of most felons after they have completed their sentences. (Tuesday, 7 p.m., DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Orlando at SeaWorld, 10100 International Dr., Orlando.)
