Roanoke and Norfolk papers say pay court-appointed lawyers more, in fact pay everybody more

In this editorial, the Roanoke Times says the legislature should pay more for court-appointed attorneys in criminal cases, and while they're at it, every thing else. The editorial says: "The pending legislation happens to require funding for the criminal justice system, but the demand could just as well be for roads, mental health, the environment or the arts."

In this editorial, the Norfolk paper jumps on board, and gives Attorney General candidate Bob McDonnell some credit for his proposals in this area.
