Rehnquist: Congress Should Have Sought Judiciary's Advice -

The scariest part of the Feeny amendment is that "it reduces federal judges' discretion in sentencing criminals, and requires reports to Congress on any judge who departs from sentencing guidelines."

I know this isn't new stuff to most of you, but it drives me nuts that a major news source like Foxnews can publish a story like this and STILL the general public has no clue about any of this or the implications.
