Some other interesting 2006 reviews
If still in a reviewing mood, be sure to check out Grits for Breakfast's list of the "Top Ten Texas Criminal Justice Stories of 2006" and Dahlia Lithwick's review of "the top 10 civil liberties nightmares of the year."
Though focused on Texas, Grits serves up a very satisfying list with developments and issues that are faced by many criminal justice systems. Meanwhile, as critics have pointed out, Lithwick's list is disappointing for its focus on only war-on-terror issues. Especially after devouring the Grit's list and recalling various sentencing injustices (recent examples here and here), many of Lithwick's concerns seem quite misplaced in a purported catalog of top "civil liberties nightmares."

Thanks for the props, Doc!
