The Score

Posted on Wed, Sep 2, 2009 at 4:00 AM

+2 After a two-week series of prostitution stings, Richmond Police announce the arrest of 31 men and women, sending their photos to local media. And after reviewing the pictures, let's just say the recession's hit the hooker market pretty hard. 

-3 The University of Richmond student newspaper, The Collegian, reports on the eruption of four suspected cases of swine flu at the school. Fortunately, the rest of Richmond is safe thanks to the protective bubble surrounding the campus. 

-5 In a lawsuit, about 20 Shockoe Bottom businesses seek $31.7 million from the city, charging it with improperly protecting them from flooding during Tropical Storm Gaston. The city hopes to settle after negotiating down to a crate of ShamWows. 

0 In a commentary for the Times-Dispatch, Gov. Doug Wilder writes about the qualities he'd like to see in the next governor and writes about the fiscal responsibility he brought to the role. And killing bears. 

+2 As punishment for his attack on Rihanna, hip-hop star Chris Brown will serve six months of court-ordered community service here, overseen by Police Chief Bryan T. Norwood. Sure, he may have less time to fight Richmond crime, but one lucky chief's getting an awesome new backyard pool.
