The Score

This Week: Election Day, VCU Party Police, New Airline + More

-2 The VCU Police Department kicks off an initiative that allows students to register their parties online, which gives them a free pass if they get a noise complaint. So far, the only people to sign up are those nerds from Lambda Lambda Lambda.

+4 Some 5,000 people turn out for the 11th annual Train Day in the town of Ashland. Make that 4,999 train aficionados and one dude who was heartbroken that he didn't get to hear "Drops of Jupiter" performed live.

+1 Richmond radio station Rock 96.5 drops the nationally syndicated John Boy & Billy to launch a local morning show with co-hosts Sam and Mason. But no matter how you slice it, Styx is still coming out of those speakers.

+5 Richmond International Airport welcomes Southwest Airlines and its new nonstop service to Orlando with the help of a water-cannon salute over the tarmac. The Dom Pérignon cannons don't fire till Virgin America gets here.

-6 We go to press before Election Day, but by now you probably know the name of Virginia's next governor. Somewhere along the line, hope and change became dope and deranged.
