Booker circuit action does not slow down on Friday

I am just back from an afternoon speaking about sentencing to a group from the National Bar Association in Cincinnati (home of an undefeated baseball team, I must note).  And a quick stop at the always helpful Appellate Law & Practice reveals that the Booker circuit action has not slowed down.  I see posts from AL&P about notable cases concerning Booker or other sentencing issues from the First Circuit here, from the Second Circuit here, from the Sixth Circuit here and here.  And from another source I have seen this order entered by the Fourth Circuit denying the Government's Petitions for Rehearing En Banc in the Hughes (plain error) case.

I hope this weekend to find some time to comment on these and other Booker developments, although I may be distracted by another sporting event if the sun decides to finally come out in Augusta.  But the brewing debate over white-collar cases, to be found at this link, will definitely get a few words from me before long.
