Weekend plans...

I am back from a terrific experience talking about the sentencing world at the UNC School of Law.  I always get new insights talking to smart folks about this stuff, and all of the dialogue got me even more mixed up (as does Judge Cassell's Wilson opinion) about whether to love or hate (or both love and hate) every aspect of the Booker ruling.

In any event, I am planning to take the greatly needed long weekend to catch my breath and take stock.  I hope to be able to do some further commentary on Booker and Wilson, and I also hope to be able to share other commentary I see or receive. (Thankfully, I see this afternoon from SCOTUS blog here that no opinions are expected from the High Court next week, so we do not (yet) have to worry about a decision in Shepard or Roper on top of Booker.)

I would bet that a lot of readers might now have plans for drafting Booker motions this weekend.  I will try my best to link to, or provide copies of, any notable Booker motions that I see.  Happy drafting.
