The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

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

+5There's resolution in the Ben Fawley trial as the Richmonder enters a guilty plea to second-degree murder of Taylor Behl and receives a 30-year prison sentence. Do prison jumpsuits come in Goth Black?

-7As in airports around the world, traveling at Richmond International Airport becomes ensnared in delays and shampooless hassles after a terror plot is thwarted by authorities in England. Is it us, or have airport security guards never looked better?

-1Mayor Wilder warns that city trash pickup could be disrupted because of City Council's 1 percent cut to departmental operating budgets. It's called trash rearrangement, meaning they'll throw your trash into the neighbor's yard and vice versa.

0On the heels of the Carytown Watermelon Festival, a technical snag briefly transfers Carytown's Web site,, into the hands of Cary, N.C., and back again, reports the blog River City Rapids. Next year, watch for the Carytown Pulled Pork Festival.

+3Bald baseball fans get in free to a Richmond Braves game for a night honoring the team's bald catcher, Dax Norris. Tragically, all of the assembled bald heads cast a glare so powerful that several astronauts are blinded.
