The dog ate my congressional district

Editors, Washington Examiner

Gerrymandering is massively overrated as a problem, both in its power to determine election outcomes in the House and in its effect on the national political climate. But it's perfectly appropriate for activists to take their complaints about it to their state capitols, to influence legislators and to force referenda on the subject. Federal courts should not be touching maps, let alone redrawing them in either party's favor just because the current ones look like a dog's breakfast.
