The Score

+4 "Man of Steel" opens nationwide, setting box-office records and featuring Richmond's Robert Cooper Timberline as one of the young Clark Kents. Or as sixth-grade girls call him, Super Dreamy.

-5 After a bogus threatening call that was part of several hoaxes across the country, Richmond International Airport must be evacuated. On the upside, it was a great day to vacuum the carpet.

+1 "It was the first time a sitting senator has delivered a floor speech entirely in Spanish," The Washington Post notes of Sen. Tim Kaine's headline-generating discussion of immigration reform. But Kaine loses all points scored with Latino-Americans when he ends the speech by shouting, "Goooooooaaaaalll!!!"

+3 Thousands of meat-averse diners and the veggie-curious turn out for the Richmond Vegetarian Festival in Bryan Park. After the previous weekend's Bacon Festival, the city's balance has been restored — and most important, its cholesterol levels.

+2 A father-son team opens Rusty Beaver Brewery in Ruther Glen, with its Smashed Bastard being an early hit. It goes over much better than the test version, Stop Drinking, You Bastard.
