    I'm not in favor of gerrymandering from either side, and the new IL map is a mess.  My suburb is carved up completely non-sensically, and the place where I vote 4 blocks from my house is in a different district now.

    I do think it's better for the voters and community involvement to have towns be as uniform as possible and have one representative.  District lines can be drawn using rivers, interstates, forest preserves and industrial areas, so that neighbors on opposite sides of the street don't have different Congressmen.  I hate what the Dems did to IL districts.
