I'm gonna take my gavel and go home...and play judge, too

Rep. James Sensenbrenner, he of the infamous "close the hearing/take the gavel/turn off the mikes" episode is back in the news. Skippy reports that Sensenbrenner recently wrote to a judge complaining that an appeals panel had sentenced a drug offender to only 97 months, not the maximum stipulated by statute. The congressman demanded an explanation for the decision. Um, whatever happened to separation of powers, folks?
