the score

A weekly ranking of the city zeitgeist

Posted on Wed, May 15, 2002 at 4:00 AM

+1



A new identity is introduced at Jamestown island, America's first permanent English settlement: "Historic Jamestowne, America's Birthplace." The new name is meant to illustrate how original settlers were intrigued by italics and the letter E.



+3



So far, three of the dozen indicted members of the violent Fulton Hill Hustlers drug gang are convicted on such charges as racketeering and conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine. Leave it to a few drug gang members to make all drug gangs look bad.



+3



A state environmental agency praises Richmond for reducing the amount of raw sewage flowing into the James during rainstorms. Unfortunately, the city has made fewer strides reducing mudslinging, dirt-digging and real-estate taxes.



TOTAL SCORE: +10
