the score

A weekly ranking of the city zeitgeist

Posted on Wed, Apr 23, 2003 at 4:00 AM

Richmond hires a new fire chief, Larry L. Collins from Dayton, Ohio. He's cautioned not to jump to conclusions if he sees a building filled with smoke — hosing down the new Philip Morris headquarters would be bad PR.

score: +2

For beer and fish, Virginia politicians come together on a summery day at the 55th annual Shad Planking in Wakefield. It's so hot that several politicians are forced to take their hands out of lobbyists' pockets.

score: -1

On Brown's Island, demolition starts on the old steam plant to make way for the huge residential/office/retail/entertainment development Riverside Village. How true: It takes a village to raze an isle.

score: 0

this week's score: +7
