Lots for sentencing fans in Harvard Law Review SCOTUS issue

As all top-shelf law geeks know, online the November issue of the Harvard Law Review is always devoted to the Supreme Court's prior Term work.  And that issue is now availabel online at this link

Sentencing fans will find lots worth reading in this new HLR issue: in addition to a bunch of professorial commentary about the Heller Second Amendment case, this issue includes student comments on two capital sentencing cases Baze v. Rees and Kennedy v. Louisiana, and also student comments on other important sentencing (or sentencing-related cases) like Kimbrough v. United States and Danforth v. Minnesota.

Holiday travel and other matters may keep me from consuming this always great HLR issue in full anytime soon.  I would thus be grateful for reader commentary on which piece are must-read material.
