More Booker news reports and editorial praise

Newspaper articles reporting on federal sentencings continue to provide an interesting view of the post-Booker world.  At least based on the stories below, there seems to be little basis for Congress to fear that federal judges are consistently using their new discretion to "go soft" in fraud cases.

Meanwhile, on the editorial pages, we are continuing to see significant expressions of support for the Booker outcome.  Recent editorials praising Booker come from the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the San Antonio Express-News; prior collections of similar pieces can be found here and here and here and here.
