The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.


+7 Though attendance is down and feet are muddy, music fans push through a wet weekend to keep spirits high at the Richmond Folk Festival. Hmmm, Muddy Feet. Now that sounds like a good folk band name.

-5 Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Robert Sarvis doesn’t meet the bar set by organizers for debating Terry McAuliffe and Ken Cuccinelli on Oct. 24, the final face-off before the election. Sarvis just didn’t run the minimum number of negative ads required.

-3 About 200 employees at Capital One learn that they’ll be laid off. The savings is roughly equal to what’s in Alec Baldwin’s wallet.

0 Country music station K-95 overtakes urban hits station KISS-FM to hit No. 1 in the summer ratings, according to Nielsen Audio. Kanye West burst into K-95’s studios, grabbed the mic and declared KISS-FM the greatest radio station of all time.

+3 Mounted squads from across the country and Canada come to town for the North American Police Equestrian Championships. Canada has crime?
