Great sentencing (beach?) reading
For some reason, I always think my "to-read" pile will get shorter in the summer, but it never does. And now I am adding to the pile these interesting-looking papers I spotted on SSRN. The true sentencing fan should have no shame taking any of these pieces to the beach:
- Death Bed by Deborah Denno
- Well Excuse Me! - Remorse, Apology, and Criminal Sentencing by Jeffrie Murphy
- The Illegality of Resentencing by Quin Sorenson
- The Death Penalty's Future: Charting the Crosscurrents of Declining Death Sentences and the McVeigh Factor by Scott Sundby

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Great sentencing (beach?) reading:
Are you married, Doc? My better half would suggest such "true sentencing fans" need to get a life, or she suggests such to me when I bring work-related stuff on vacation. And she's right (frustratingly often, actually) - if you're thinking about "the McVeigh factor" at the beach, you've probably forgotten why you went there!
Want some beach reading? Real, honest to god, fun, intellectually interesting fiction beach reading? Try Suzan Lori Parks' "Getting Mother's Body." Brilliant writing and the plot's quite a hoot.
If you actually take that stuff to read at the beach, I beg you as a regular reader, please post pictures to document the occasion. (I ask purely for pedagogical reasons: That might give me the final impetus I need to break down and learn photoshop.) Happy reading!
