The Score

Posted on Tue, Sep 25, 2012 at 4:58 PM


+7 A 36-hour online fundraising competition draws more than $1.2 million for local nonprofits, with first place and an extra $20,000 going to the Commonwealth Public Broadcasting Corp. In gratitude, Ken Burns promises to bore you like he's never done before.

+6 Richmonders hit up a full slate of outdoor weekend events, including St. Benedict Catholic Church's Oktoberfest and the St. James Armenian Church's food festival. The takeaway? Gluttony is this season's "it" deadly sin.

-5 The T-D reports that someone stole an American flag from the Virginia War Memorial during Sunday's early morning hours, between security patrols. Because that someone is a horrible, horrible person.

0 A Washington Post poll shows Tim Kaine leading for the first time against George Allen in the U.S. Senate race, 51 percent to 43 percent among likely voters. Experts say that while it's still too tight to call, the election just may hinge on what happens when the two meet for the annual shuck-off at the Urbanna Oyster Festival.

+2 The release of the iPhone 5 draws enthusiastic fans to scramble to such places as the Apple Store at the Short Pump Town Center. Thank goodness Steve Jobs never had the same impact on the black turtleneck market.
