A Christmas sentencing classic

As folks get nestled all snug in their beds, I must pay homage to a true sentencing classic, 'Twas the Night Before Booker, that the mysterious Milbarge of the blog Begging the Question penned around this time last year as we were all breathlessly waiting for the Booker ruling. Here again is the opening refrain from Milbarge's brilliant sentencing lyrics in case you want your holiday mood to be flavored with sentencing memories:

'Twas the night before Booker, and all through the prison,
Inmates packed up the cells that they wouldn't be missing.
The lawbooks and transcripts were bound up with care,
In hopes that the verdict soon would be there.

I wonder if Milbarge might emerge from a winter slumber to pen an update in honor of Booker's upcoming birthday on January 12?
