More reasonable reasonableness work from the Sixth Circuit

Though perhaps still a bit too guideline-centric for my taste, the Sixth Circuit's reasonableness work today in US v. Brogdon, No. 06-5548 (6th Cir. Sept. 27, 2007) (available here) seems pretty reasonable.  Here is how the opinion begins:

Defendant-Appellant Jonathan Gregory Brogdon appeals the sentence and sex-offense-related conditions of supervised release imposed by the district court. Because the sentence is procedurally and substantively reasonable and because the conditions of supervised release are reasonably related to the rehabilitation of the defendant and the protection of the public, we affirm.
