score: 0

City Councilman Joe Brooks takes a stab at stopping bowhunting within the city limits. He is obviously pandering to the powerful deer lobby.

score: 0

Worry mounts for business boosters in the city, which may lose the corporate headquarters of CSX Corp. now that John Snow has left. At least their trains still run through town.

score: -3

Rep. Eric Cantor, an emerging Republican star, creates his own money-raising political action committee, called ERICPAC. His other choice for a name, YESMANPAC, didn't have quite the same ring.

score: -1

this week's score: -5
