The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Mar 21, 2006 at 4:00 AM

+3It's a quiet Ides of March — for the first time in recent memory, the Richmond Police Department's daily summary of crimes for March 15-16 is: "Nothing to report." Sometimes no news is great news.

-1After Henrico County agrees to the zoning, plans move forward on a proposal to build two high-rises in Short Pump that could reach 18 stories. To preserve the natural balance of things, we propose raising alfalfa and chickens on the vacant Thalhimers site.

+2The second national Sunshine Week is held, meant to call attention to the importance of "open government to the public." It goes over much better than National Mooning Week.

+3Gov. Mark Warner makes the cover of The New York Times Magazine in a story about his presidential prospects, but the magazine must run an editor's note explaining the crazy color fluctuations in the cover image. That's what happens to a blue governor in a red state.

0Gov. Tim Kaine spent $3.14 million on his inaugural, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, with an extra $456,000 in donations left over. Kaine's camp regrets not buying more cocktail weenies.
