    Making smaller political bodies would exacerbate the situation. It's would create something like the dynamic in NW Indiana or Metro-East. Same problems, less clout.

    Scaling up (city-county merger) is the way to go.

      Where a plethora of counties, cities, and regional bodies all bicker and nothing big is accomplished.

      It may yet be that the center cannot hold, and things will fly apart, but try to resist.
