Helpful accounts of Shepard

I have tried my best to summarize the impact of the Supreme Court's opaque work today in Shepard v.

In addition, I think the questons posed here by my colleague Alan Michaels help spotlight the craziness that is Shepard.  (And, in a future post, I hope to set forth a set of post-Shepard questions rattling in my brain this evening.)
