It is clear that many Circuit judges who have never personally been through a sentencing hearing, still do not understand the bottom line of Booker. See the convoluted f.n., 8 of Judge Berzon's 9th Cir. opinion in U.S. v. Moreno-Hernandez stating "Booker bars the district court from considering only those facts not found by the jury other than the fact of prior conviction."
