The Score

A weekly rating of the city's zeitgeist.

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

+6Richmonders bring in 2007 with a masquerade gala, a Carbon Leaf show and a first-time Carytown countdown that draws a crowd of thousands. In short, we had a night of people disguising, rockers reprising and a big ball rising.



+2Mayor Wilder's place in history as the country's first elected African-American governor becomes news again as he celebrates with the second, Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts. During Patrick's inauguration in Boston, Wilder hands out "I'm #1" buttons.



0Former Navy secretary Jim Webb, the man who successfully torpedoed Sen. George Allen's campaign, is sworn into office in the nation's capital. First line of business: removing his predecessor's spittoon from the office.



-3City Councilman Marty Jewell declines to vote for the council president, saying it's not a protest vote, but rather an "exclamation point to denote a call for urgency in addressing the big issues" of Richmond. You know, like low voter turnout.



-1Just when you thought there wasn't enough gambling to do on Sundays, the Virginia Lottery announces it will add Sunday numbers-picking to its lineup of games. W#WJP?
