The Score: Our fifth annual ranking of the city zeitgeist. 

Measuring the year of unexpected events, surprise announcements and general mayhem.

So perhaps the embarrassment of iBook mania was in some way trumped by Richmonders helping victims of Hurricane Katrina. Maybe the painful slogging of the performing arts center project has finally ended, with collaboration and new leadership.

And maybe the challenges facing downtown were overshadowed by Philip Morris' research center, a burst of condos and the refreshingly successful National Folk Festival.

We'll take a +2.
