Gerrymandering ...

This morning I got on the web to see if there was going to be a Libertarian ballot option where I live. I turns out that the LP is only running one primary, and that's in the grossly-Gerrymandered 4th district (although we had ballot access in several) ... all other candidates will be decided on at the State's LP convention this weekend.

In the course of looking up this, I found a very good article about Gerrymandering which had an intriguing solution of how to get rid of this highly political practice. Not that anybody is going to act on it ... hell, the Illinois Supreme Court would not even consider the case which was brought to them regarding the 4th!

Here's that article:
