I go back and look to see what's happening in the old stomping grounds and see a murder charge in Powhatan and I know both the prosecutor and defense attorney. I wonder if they'll have to try it in a different jurisdiction since the local paper has had some vitriolic commentary attached to its articles.
If so, I don't think they should take any chances - bring the case out here. I think we can pretty much guarantee that no one in the mountains knows anybody involved in this and has not been influenced by either the Richmond or Powhatan paper (heck, I haven't seen a paper from as far away as Roanoke since I've been here).
C'mon down guys. I'll buy you each a chili bun.
