The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

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

+3Gangs, beware! The Gang Prosecution Strike Force is coming after you — as announced by the Richmond Commonwealth's Attorney's Office, the Richmond Police and Virginia's attorney general. (Strike Force action figures sold separately.)



+1Speaking of troubled, roving youth, "American Idols Live!" comes to town, and with it hordes of fans seeking out Richmond favorite Elliott Yamin. The Strike Force quickly realizes it is outnumbered and retreats, vowing to someday take back the streets.



-1In other Elliott news, the singer makes national headlines after the T-D reports that he's five minutes late to meet President Bush because he was napping — and triggers online fan speculation that he was making a political statement. Was he sleeping because he hated freedom?



0To fill Ed Barber's vacated spot, Chesterfield's Board of Supervisors appoints Terri Cofer Beirne, who tells the T-D she'll be "holding the wheel" until November. Her campaign slogan, after all, was "Status Quo in 2006!"



-2The Creative Change Center, C3, announces the closing of its free gathering spot for "creatives" in Shockoe Bottom, but plans to find a way to continue as an organization. Get ready for longer lines at Starbucks.
