The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist

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

0Sorry, Gov. Tim Kaine: Maymont's new bear will not be called "Tim" in your honor, because Mayor L. Douglas Wilder is holding his own bear-naming contest. We suspect the bear will go by L-Do for short.



-3Belle Isle catches fire. It's the first blaze there not followed by the munchies.



-2While some people are sipping lemonade this summer, others will be testing Philip Morris USA's new "Taboka" — a kind of tobacco-in-a-pouch that requires no spitting. Taboka: For the Smoka Who Like-a to Choka.



-2The mayor's performing-arts committee releases its interim report, revealing, in part, that the Carpenter Center will not be open again until at least 2009. By then, your old ticket stubs will be historic documents.



+1The Richmond-founded Overnite Transportation becomes UPS Freight. Overnite employees get their legs in shape for the brown shorts. Rowrrr.
