Great stuff around the blogosphere

There are lots of great new sentencing posts and links at many of my favorite blogs. Capital Defense Weekly and Sex Offender Issues both have long review posts up now, and many of the weekend links from How Appealing have to do with a variety of interesting criminal justice issues.

But Michael Connelly at Corrections Sentencing has the post of the weekend with this short entry, which quotes the "new speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, a young Republican, a very proud conservative (very proud and very conservative)."  As the quote and Michael both highlight:

Like several issues in the news right now, corrections sentencing policy isn't really liberal v. conservative anymore.  It's realist v. denier.  Broad public sense v. narrow professional (or advocacy) self-interest.  There's a solid middle ground to be defined between realist conservatives and realist liberals on our critical needs.  It's time to turn off the mikes of the deniers and get on with our business.
