There's a simple way to end gerrymandering. Too bad Congress made it illegal. - Vox 

Years back, a law professor told me that when she teaches a class on the drawing of legislative districts, she leaves the issue of multi-member districts for last because it solves all the problems too well and makes the rest of the material uninteresting.

I was reminded of that when I read Kim Soffen's Upshot column about the way geography rather than gerrymandering disadvantages Democrats in Florida when it comes to the US House of Representatives. . . .  

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."
