Interesting state Blakely reports

After a long but enjoyably uneventful trip to attend this conference, I am now on-line and on west coast time.  And, upon checking my e-mail, I was pleased to find two reports about recent state Blakely developments.  I hope the helpful correspondents won't mind me sharing their text verbatim:

In addition, I see on-line that Washington is keeping Blakely busy in the new year with another Blakely reversal: State v. Smith, 2005 Wash. App. LEXIS 16 (Wash. App. Jan. 4, 2005).  (Other 2005 Washington rulings are detailed here.)  Smith is notable because it generates a dissent over Blakely's applicability in a sex offender case involving a unique provision of Washington's sentencing law.

I have an appeal involving the application of Blakely to judicially created sentencing benchmarks. Any thoughts?
