Great sentencing thoughts around the blogosphere

Inspired in part by the sentencing today of former Tyco International executives, the blogosphere is buzzing with a number of great sentencing posts:

  • Brooks Holland over at PrawfsBlawg has this engaging post on prison conditions and punishment theory asking "Should sentencing judges more openly consider this factor in any manner in fashioning an appropriate sentence?"

  • Paul Butler, over at the new and intriguing blackprof.com, has this thoughtful post discussing two "prominent women convicted of perjury": Martha Stewart and Lil Kim.  [UPDATE: And now I see that Dan Markel at PrawfsBlawg has followed up thoughtfully in this post.]
