The Score

Posted on Wed, Feb 6, 2008 at 12:00 AM

+3The Sex Workers' Art Show, canceled at VCU because of controversy, finds a new venue in the Gay Community Center of Richmond. You'd be surprised at what a hooker can do with some elbow macaroni and glitter glue.

+8At the General Assembly, legislators vote to repeal the incredibly unpopular abusive driver fees. What kind of state are we living in that punishes people for drinking sangria and driving poorly?

+1Adam Sachs, 7, of Maybeury Elementary School, becomes the first first-grader to compete in Henrico County's Spelling Bee -- jumping into the fray with competitors as advanced as middle school. He can spell just about any word as long as it's "Yu-Gi-Oh."

-3Media General, the parent company of the Times-Dispatch, reports that its fourth-quarter profits dropped 70 percent from the same time in 2006. To save money in the short term, the paper will be cutting comics down to one panel and, following television's model, offering "reality news."

+2Some 60 tons of snow from Wintergreen are dumped in the parking lot of Bandito's Burrito Lounge for the area's first River City Rail Fest, in which snowboarders perform to raise money for breast-cancer awareness. It was followed by the after-party, Melt Fest '08: Come watch 60 tons of snow disappear!
