The Score

Posted on Tue, Jan 1, 2008 at 4:00 AM

+2Employees at Hankins and Anderson chip in to help co-worker Anne Hart replace the Christmas gifts she'd bought, the T-D reports, which burglars had stolen from under the tree in her home. Not to look a gift-horse in the mouth, but maybe they should've bought her a burglar alarm.



+7Christmas comes and goes, Legendary Santa leaves and we all turn our attention to the big ball rising on the roof of the Byrd Theatre. If only we could recycle this for Carytown's big summer event: a giant rising watermelon?



+3The U.S. Census reports that Virginia's population grew in line with national rates between July 2006 and July 2007, giving us a population of 7.71 million. Just a few million shy of the number of visitors for Jamestown's 400th anniversary.



0Gov. Tim Kaine launches a Commission on Climate Change to figure out how Virginia can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Could someone have his eye on a future Nobel Prize … ?



-2Startup business-class airline MAXjet Airways, whose big Richmond investors included "Booty" Armstrong, Bill Goodwin, Rick Sharp and Jeremiah Sheehan, shuts down and files for bankruptcy protection. Guess all those rich bastards will just have to dust off their own private jets!
