Lots to read about American sentencing development on this patriotic day off
For reasons I only partially understand, I have a regular teaching day at my law school; it seems nearly all other government-linked institutions have an extra day to their weekend thanks to our nation's greatest presidents. Fortunately, for those sentencing fans looking to find a productive way to spend this extra day off, there are lots of new papers on SSRN worth giving a look. Here is just an abridged list of pieces recently added to SSRN that I hope I might soon find time to read:
The Failure of Parole: Rethinking the Role of the State in Reentry by Christine S. Scott-Hayward
Protecting Liberty and Autonomy: Desert/Disease Jurisprudence by Stephen Morse

You had "Presidents Day Observed" on December 26?
The Monday Holiday Act was bad enough, but that's downright weird.
Only in academia.

Maybe you should run for office.

...you could appoint your Pal, Kent Scheidegger to be Attorney General.
No longer would anyone be wondering about U.S. justice.

When you're AG, I volunteer to be your Counselor. If it's "reforms" our friends are seeking, I think we'll be able to oblige.
