The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Wed, Nov 10, 2010 at 1:00 AM

-1The T-D reports that Sen. George Allen, praised by Rudy Giuliani, is starting a television ad blitz about his re-election campaign. But then he adds fuel to the macaca fire, blurting out: "Giuliani's a cinch to help me secure Virginia's 'meatball vote.'"

+2Speaking of fatty seasoned meat, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling declares in the Times-Dispatch that he's going to lose 30 pounds by the end of the year. Don't despair, lobbyists: His diet will still permit free meals.

+1Mayor Wilder proposes an emergency plan that would send Hampton Roads evacuees to the Richmond International Raceway and Paramount's Kings Dominion. What better way to forget about the home you left behind than a ride on the Rebel Yell!

+4Richmond heads into the holiday weekend with a break in drought conditions, a drop in gas prices and a final rest before school starts. But we'll certainly find something to complain about.

+1The Richmond Renegades hockey team announces that it will play host to a "Battle of the High School Bands," with the finale playoff at a game in March. Red ice, baby!
