A Booker musing

If you are like me (or like Article III Groupie), you have perhaps always wondered what federal judges do on the weekend.  (Of course, we already know what cows do on the weekend: they go to the moooooovies (hat tip to a toddler comedian I know).)

Now I know that at least one federal judge spends time thinking about federal sentencing because US District Judge Richard Kopf (of Wanning fame) was kind enough to send me a copy of what he calls "A Short Essay on Booker as a Thought Experiment for District Judges" which is dated this past Sunday.  And I have set up this essay, which can be downloaded below, with a bit of whimsy because it ends with a whimsical footnote.  But, before it gets to that footnote, it provides some interesting Booker food-for-thought.
