The Score

Posted on Tue, Feb 12, 2008 at 4:00 AM

+5Ralph Nader comes to Richmond for "The Biggest Picture," a weekend film festival at the Byrd Theatre exploring environmental issues. Special thanks to Bob, who hand-cranked the projector by candlelight.



-6Speaking of the environment, a dry, windy weekend leads to wildfires in Central Virginia and across the state, prompting Gov. Kaine to declare a state of emergency. That's us, always trying to be more like California.



+4Virginia Democrats turn out in full force for the largest ever Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Richmond, where Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama appear separately to cheering fans. For our ambivalent commonwealth, Obama declared, "Yes we might."



+3Eighth blackbird, the new-music sextet in residence at the University of Richmond, wins a Grammy for best chamber music performance with its album "Strange Imaginary Animals," which, of course, is named after Amy Winehouse.



+1More Grammy excitement: A rising-star violinist, Virginian Ann Marie Calhoun, wins the "My Grammy Moment" contest and performs with the Foo Fighters on the live Grammy broadcast. Tragically, her violin bow gets caught in Dave Grohl's hair.
