Lou Cummings has a couple of good question. He wants to know “where the SEC investigation of the City stands insofar as naming specific City Councilpersons for being more than “negligent” in the performance of their fiduciary responsibilities when signing off on bond indentures.”

My colleague Evan McLaughlin had this exclusive story explaining that earlier this month.

Cummings also asked: “what’s former disgraced mayor Murphy doing these days?”

Well, as best I can tell, he’s been checking out live music and reading voiceofsandiego.org.

In January, CityBeat reported that Murphy was spotted at a hipster hangout taking in a concert.

And just yesterday, actually, Dick Murphy called our offices. It seems a wily reader had posted a comment on Council President Scott Peters’ blog post posing as Murphy. Murphy wanted to alert us to the fact that he, the former mayor, hadn’t made the comment.

Ira Lechner also wrote in requesting an analysis of city workers’ pensions. I’m going to pass on this one, as I’ve spent a good deal of my adult life analyzing pensions and I’m interested in this peninsula planning issue. (I’ll get to this later in the afternoon/evening.)

However, I did two stories in early 2005 looking at how the pension issue was impacting two city workers and what their pensions were. You can read them here and here.
