This blog has been a little slow, but as you hopefully noticed, I put up a couple of columns this week.

I like to use a different tone in columns. It’s a way to structure things differently than I do in the blog. I use more of an essay style. If you missed them, here they are: The first was the latest in my series of hopeful pieces (one reader has dubbed them “sermons”) on the city’s financial mess. “Let’s Not Let Everything Go to Hell” was the title. I realize that it generated a lot of responses and challenges and I’m trying to craft a response to a few of those. I’ll hopefully have one this weekend.

The second was my piece on the severance agreement the county pension system is trying to award its departed chief investment officer.

Thanks for engaging me in these conversations. You all have so many interesting things to say.

Stay tuned for the radio show Sunday, noon on AM 600 KOGO. Andy and I are talking about the economy — you know it’s bad when lawyers are getting laid off. Of course, if you aren’t sitting by a radio on a beautiful Sunday, you can always see the audio player to the right there and listen at your convenience. Next week, they’re extending the show to an hour-long program and we’ll be bringing on guests.

There’s some update to this Chula Vista story too. Again, I’ll try to get that up asap.

In the meantime, I hope you can get outside in this sun. Amazing place, San Diego is.
