FSR (re)call for Booker commentary

As detailed more fully in this post from last month, the Federal Sentencing Reporter is soliciting commentaries addressing the question "How should Congress and the U.S. Sentencing Commission respond to Booker?".  Here is the essence of the project:

After the Supreme Court's Booker decision in January, many commentators urged Congress to allow the advisory guideline system created by Booker to remain in place for a year "to give it a chance to work" and to allow sufficient time to evaluate its efficacy.  This suggested observation period is coming to a close, and the Federal Sentencing Reporter is soliciting short commentaries (under 2000 words) addressing what Congress and the U.S. Sentencing Commission should do now.

FSR is eager to hear from many persons representing a wide variety of perspectives.  Thoughtful commentaries received before Thanksgiving can appear in FSR's December 2005 Issue; those received in January will be slated to appear in FSR's February 2006 Issue.  For more information, contact me at this link and/or download this document which provides more "Booker fix" food-for-thought.
