The Score

A weekly ranking of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Jan 31, 2012 at 2:19 PM

+3 The Times-Dispatch reports that the eagles featured on its Richmond Eagle Cam started mating over the weekend, and are likely to continue going at it for the next two weeks. That is, until they get creeped out by all the people watching them on camera.

0 One of Richmond’s most powerful chief executives, Altria Group’s Michael Szymanczyk, announces his May retirement. He looks forward to getting some fresh air.

-4 TVNewsCheck reports that Richmond-based Media General, in debt by $658 million at the end of 2011, is at risk of bankruptcy. You might be a Plugger if…

-2 The House of Delegates passes a bill that would make it legal for two motorcyclists to ride side-by-side in a single lane. The Crotch Rocket Amendment to permit passing on the shoulder is still under discussion.

+5 Promoters announce that Elton John will play the Richmond Coliseum in March, his first time here in six years. The Coliseum hasn’t seen this many sequins, makeup and flamboyance since WWE’s Smackdown came to town.
