the score

A weekly ranking of the city zeitgeist

Posted on Wed, Jul 31, 2002 at 4:00 AM

+1

A man is taken off a plane at Richmond International Airport after joking about a bomb in his crotch. If only the Richmond humor-police could have acted so swiftly at the Carpenter Center after "And Then There's Bea Starring Bea Arthur."

+2

House Republicans name Del. William J. Howell to replace S. Vance Wilkins Jr. as speaker. He promises that from now on, any groping, pinching and leering at the General Assembly will be carried out more equitably.

+2

Richmond Police make out big at a sobriety checkpoint, netting 82 arrests — including DUIs, revoked licenses and drug possession charges. Unfortunately, they could do nothing about the "My Son Is On the Honor Roll" bumper stickers.

TOTAL SCORE: +8
