San Diego has made the annual list of “Incidents Directed Against Courthouses in the United States,” put out by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. “An individual was questioned by a court security officer after he was observed videotaping in a San Diego courtroom,” the report says. “The video recording included footage of the interior and exterior of the courthouse as well as the weapons screening area.” No word on the fate of the suspicious videographer. … Embattled Democratic senate majority leader Harry Reid has been in town collecting $2400 dollops of campaign cash from a bevy of Qualcomm bigwigs, including founder Irwin Jacobs; son Paul; president Steve Altman; senior director of international government affairs Shawn Covell; senior V.P. Frank Fjeldheim; and executive V.P. Jing Wang. In all, ten of the company’s executives have so far ponied up for the Nevadan, according to federal disclosure filings. La Jollan Dennis DeConcini, the ex–Arizona senator who was a member of the notorious Keating Five during the great savings and loan scandal of the ’80s, gave $2000. He is now with Parry, Romani, DeConcini & Symms, a Washington lobbying outfit whose clients include Verizon Wireless. … Edward Babakanian, chief information officer of UCSD Medical Center since 1996, has been named by UC regents to the position of chief information officer of health sciences. The new gig pays $312,600. … Erica Costa, an aide to Democratic assemblywoman Lori Saldaña, got a free $154 ticket and refreshments at a Kings game in Sacramento’s Arco Arena last March, thanks to AT&T. The same month, the telephone giant gave Joe Patterson, legislative director for GOP assemblyman Martin Garrick, a ticket worth $165.
