Coverage of Monday's SCOTUS sentencing sambas

Unsurprisingly, the media has lots of coverage of the Supreme Court's work in House and HIll yesterday, and Howard Bashman here has assembled lots of highlights.  I find the pieces providing a local perspective on what the rulings could mean for particular states (like California and Texas) particularly interesting.  Readers are encouraged to spotlight any story that seems especially insightful.

Speaking of being especially insightful, Will Baude at Crescat has this great examination of the sparring between Justices Thomas and Stevens over the fate of Almendarez-Torres.  His post reinforces my sense that, as I suggested in posts here and here, the non-capital sentencing action from SCOTUS yesterday is even more interesting and likely more consequential than all the death penalty work capturing all the newspaper headlines.
