  •  Defining the terms of the debate (7+ / 0-)

    By getting out early to define the problem and establish a way to negate the "both sides do it" defense, this is a very good start.  In general, those who define the terms of the debate win.  More of this, please!  

    Puddytat is right that the significant omission here is the absence of an explicit charge to address gerrymandering, but maybe that can be inserted through the public hearings or the Commissioners themselves.  Hammering this for the months leading up to 2014 will pay big dividends.
