Any field correspondents for the USSC cocaine hearings?
As discussed here and here, the US Sentencing Commission's Public Hearing on "Cocaine and Federal Sentencing Policy — 2006" will take place starting early tomorrow morning at Georgetown University Law Center. Sadly, it appears that neither the USSC or Georgetown has plans to webcast the hearing. Consequently, I am hoping that some enterprising attendee is planning to live-blog the event or might try to write up some reactions for this blog.
Helpfully, the USSC's website now has links to nearly all of submitted testimony (save from the Executive Branch) with the hearing agenda available at this link. I suspect that the copious written testimony provides a pretty thorough preview of what might be expected tomorrow. But I will still be eager to hear a field report about (1) what the Executive Branch folks say, and (2) how the Sentencing Commissioners all react. I suspect the traditional media will cover some of this, but so far they've not given much attention to this notable event.

I am a graduate student currently doing a paper on the sentencing guideline disparities of cocaine. I am very much interested in the results of this event. If possible, could you please provide me with some more information on where I can find more information (scholarly journals). Thank you.
