The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

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

0Who needs the lottery? Johnny Johnson, the face of the former Community Pride chain, wins a $16 million judgment in Richmond Circuit Court against Supervalu Inc., which he alleged had put him out of business. That'll buy a lot of Viagra.

-2A water leak on the roof of City Hall shuts down the building for about four days, two of them over the weekend. Did any of you notice City Hall was shut down? Really, be honest.

+2Speaking of liquid, the brew flows freely through the River City Beer and Seafood Festival, which draws thousands of beer-lovers to Brown's Island. It's the time of year in which beer-battered shrimp begin their long migration upriver to spawn.

+1In the Fox-backed local version of "American Idol," Virginia Tech student Matt Millner wins Richmond Idol (and beats 185 other contestants) with his rendition of "The Longest Time." It reminded the judges what it felt like to audition 185 other contestants.

-1Reader submitted: As part of its redesign, the Times-Dispatch decides to eliminate the 6-7 p.m. hour from the daily TV listings. This, of course, is when local television news is broadcast. Coincidence???
