The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Nov 22, 2011 at 1:50 PM

-4 In their mucked-up plan for a new city jail, Richmond officials fail to get their changes approved by state officials, meaning they must go back to the drawing board. What if we just lock everyone in one hot, overcrowded room until they can get this done?

+7 Conservative broadcast personality Glenn Beck’s radio show joins the Richmond Outreach Center’s 10th annual Thanksgiving Dinner, which serves meals to about 1,500 inner-city youth. Finally, a Beck conspiracy that makes sense.

-6 The T-D reports that a house fire in the Museum District is leading authorities to suspect it as a meth lab. One other clue was the new addition to Richmond’s food-blogger scene, Slow Cookin’ with Cold Medicine.

+2 The University of Richmond announces the launch of a nationwide search for a new football coach. We know a few from upstate who won’t be applying.

-5 Gov. Bob McDonnell announces that there will be no Capitol Christmas-tree-lighting event his year, because it conflicts with Steven Spielberg’s production of the Lincoln film. Can a ceremony on Ray Boone’s front lawn be far behind?
