More (too much?) media reading

Last night I did a quick media round-up of major Booker coverage here, but proving again that he is the blog king, Howard Bashman has collected here links to a straggering number of articles about the ruling.  Bonus point to readers who highlight articles or quotes of particular note.

I find particularly interesting the "on-the-ground" local stories such as those today from the Boston Globe, the Detroit Free Press, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette.  Also, this article from The Oregonian reports on a sentencing in which a federal district judge recognized the guidelines were advisory but imposed the guidelines sentence anyway.

Also very interesting is this San Francisco Chronicle article with interesting and conflicting assessments of what Booker means for California's state sentencing system.
