The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.


-2Residents in some parts of the Brandermill Woods Retirement Community are quarantined after a 72-person outbreak of respiratory chlamydia, the Times-Dispatch reports. Just what exactly goes on in that place?

+3A former football star at the University of Richmond, NASA astronaut Leland Melvin, is assigned to head skyward on a space-shuttle mission some time after September 2007. In celebration, we dump a cooler of Tang over his head!

-1How hot is it? Climate change at work? Just wait till the monkeys start living in the dogwoods.

+1Richmond Police introduce their House Watch Program, in which officers on patrol keep tabs on the empty homes of vacationing families. The whole thing's clearly ripped off from the Richmond Burglars Association.

+3After a historic trip to Britain to boost cultural awareness, a group of Indians from Virginia return home. Now that they've had their fun, it's time to bring on 2007: The Year of Celebrating the White Guys Who Discovered
