The Score

Posted on Tue, Dec 23, 2014 at 10:13 AM

-2 Richmonders race around local stores for last-minute Christmas gifts. We haven’t seen Short Pump this crowded and traffic-snarled since last week!

-5 Democrats must scramble to find a nominee to run for Delegate Joe Morrissey’s seat, after he says he’ll resign, and then says he’ll run, and then says he won’t run as a Democrat. Ironically, this kind of indecision is the hallmark of a great General Assembly member.

+4 Councilman Jon Baliles proposes an ordinance to put the city’s check register online, where the public could see who’s paid what. Does the $23 million for a new brewery get filed under “entertainment” or “beer fund”?

+1 The Greenberg Train and Toy show comes to town, bringing hundreds of model trains, accessories and collectibles for sale. Unfortunately, event organizers keep turning down our theme song idea, “C’Mon ’N Ride It.” Sorry, Quad City DJs. We tried.

-1 Fed up with delivery packages being stolen from the porches of his neighbors, one resident packs a box with dog excrement and places it outside — where it’s stolen. At least we’ve finally found a neighborhood where they pick up after their pets.
