The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

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

-4Sen. George Allen finds himself considering a resolution apologizing for slavery after it's revealed he wore a Confederate flag pin in a high-school yearbook photo. Luckily, Susan's destroyed the "South Will Rise Again" bikini briefs he picked up on vacation.



+3Finally, there's good bear news at Maymont: Mayor L. Douglas Wilder announces that the park will get a young bear from the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. It's part of a special "Kill Two, Get One Free" offer.



+3Richmonders climb aboard the Elliott Yamin bandwagon, posting signs, stickers and messages on cars, and joining such Web sites as EverythingElliott.com and Yaminions.com. Coming soon: the Burn Taylor in Effigy Festival at Monroe Park.



+2Parents and students in Henrico County ask the School Board to offer lacrosse programs as a varsity sport. Because, after all, it's a good time to consider the wholesome image lacrosse brings to mind.



-1A group of about 100 muckety-mucks from the region go visit Nashville to see what they can learn and bring back to Richmond. It's a success — they find scads of ideas to fuel committees, conference agendas and meaningless debates for years to come.
