Posted on Wed, Apr 9, 2003 at 4:00 AM

Despite months of debate, controversy and national press, Lincoln's statue is unveiled in Richmond. Undeterred, protestors conduct a special meeting to determine what Confederate injustice they can complain about next.

score:2

Owners of the Richmond Renegades hockey team throw in the puck after 13 seasons. Players take the news bravely, but the Zamboni drivers break down, releasing all the emotion they've kept bottled inside after all these years, the pent-up pressure of resurfacing row after row of ice, period upon period, with little appreciation. Thank you, Zamboni drivers. We will miss you more than you can possibly know.

score:-4

Virginia's first artificial anal sphincter implantation is performed at Retreat Hospital in Richmond. Please, no wisecracks.

score:3
