A Sixth Circuit pair on Booker and 3553

The Sixth Circuit in two rulings this morning provides an account of various post-Booker issues: US v. Gale, No. 05-4204 (6th Cir. Nov. 20, 2006) (available here), discussed various 3553(a) factors at length; US v. Magouirk, No. 05-5960 (6th Cir. Nov. 20, 2006) (available here), discusses a plea in which the parties apparently agreed to be bound by the guidelines even after Booker.  Both ruling look quite interesting (though both are the typical government victories), and I hope to comment further once I get a chance to review both opinions.
