    to a portion of the population, doesn't it violate the voting rights act and the civil rights act? Perhaps it even violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution. The larger goal though is to make Federal elections a Federal responsibility and get the States out of drawing up Federal districts. Doubling the size of the House would also make gerrymandering much harder to accomplish.

    For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus
