OT '06 review to start the SCOTUS pre-season

Thankfully, the seemingly endless NFL pre-season is finally winding down, and that in turn means it is  to begin the SCOTUS pre-season.  And, thanks to this post at SCOTUSblog, everyone can get in the SCOTUS mood with the help of Prof. Rory Little's effective summary of last Term's criminal cases.

Of course, because of my sentencing-addled brain, I view Cunningham v. California and Rita v. United States to be among the most interesting and consequential opinions from a relatively low-wattage criminal law docket in OT '06.  Anyone have other thoughts from looking back before we begin to look forward?
