Gerrymandering away democracy

Larry Kestenbaum has a great new blog called Polygon, the Dancing Bear. He has a love of political history, and an amazing older site that literally knows where all the political bodies are buried (see The Political Graveyard). He is more skeptical of the danger of gerrymandering than some folks; I have to say that many analyses this year are expecting fewer competitive elections than in any year in memory because of the computer precision of new redistricting maps. One radical alternative is to abandon single member districts that are so prone to redistricting games. The Center for Voting and Democracy supports a range of alternatives such as proportional representation and multi-member districts. Check them out.
