Fascinating report from this week's USSC hearing

Baylor Law Professor Mark Osler, who has previously shared great insights from inside the Beltway, attended this week's USSC hearing and was kind enough to write up a report about what transpired.  Though it appears that there was not much Blakely and Booker talk, Mark's report (which can be downloaded below) suggests that the USSC hearing was still great theater.  Here's Mark's opening sentence:

Though smaller in scope and size than November's USSC hearings which fell between Blakely and Booker, April's hearings featured plenty of give and take and a startlingly intense and informed exchange of ideas between two especially articulate and passionate panelists, Jim Felman of the Practitioner’s Advisory Group and Scott Hammond of the Antitrust Division of the DOJ.
