The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will hold two sessions April 5 to let the San Diego public comment on San Diego Gas & Electric's plan to force customers to pay for uninsured costs from the 2007 fires, in which the utility was found negligible. (SDG&E also wants such indemnity for future fires.) Many San Diegans argue that shareholders should pick up that tab, particularly since Sempra, SDG&E's parent, is enjoying huge profits and stock gain, just upped its dividend considerably, and SDG&E rates are already the highest, or among the highest, in the nation.

The two sessions will be at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. April 5 at the Al Bahr Shrine Center, 5440 Kearny Mesa Road. SDG&E will make a 15-minute presentation at the start of each session. Ramona's Mussey Grade Road Alliance filed for the public hearing in January.

At least the CPUC isn't just going to rubber stamp this proposal. But will these hearings make any difference in the ultimate ruling? Is it already a done deal? Only time will tell.

This could be a charade and the deal has already been rigged. In fact, there is good evidence that the deal was cut some time ago. More evidence is being gathered. Maybe we can see somebody at the CPUC going to prison. Best, Don Bauder

No room in the prisons; they be full of dudes and chicks caught w' a bit o' weed.

Put 'em on a chain-gang?

A chain gang is certainly where they belong, Twister. Best, Don Bauder

Interesting definitions, Murphyjunk. Now for derivations: do you suppose the word "scam" came from "scheme?" Best, Don Bauder
