The Score 

+6 Swine flu: So far, Richmond untouched. But the hoarding of BLT's has already begun. 

+2 Within blocks of each other, Bill Clinton visits Richmond the same day and time as “To Catch a Predator's” Chris Hansen. They trade notes about hidden cams like old friends. 

+4 Speaking of politicos in Shockoe Bottom, U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor and a bunch of other officials stump at Main Street Station for stimulus money to build a high-speed rail line between Richmond and Washington. Here's an idea to get the plan on the fast track: Tell Washington we'll send our taxes via train.

+2 Some 9,500 third-graders plant tree seedlings here from Dominion Virginia Power as part of Arbor Day festivities. Then when those kids are in their 30s, they'll cut the trees down and burn them for warmth in this lawless, lawless land. 

+3 Boundary-pushing Gallery5, which mixes art with music, fire and sometimes nudity, throws a party to celebrate its fourth birthday. A lot like many 4-year-olds, really.
