“Dear Mr. Lowry:
My own opinion is that gerrymandering is only part of the
story. What is needed is a lot more Congressional representatives.
In 1790 each Congressman represented 38,000 constituents.
By 2000 each Congressman represented 680,000 constituents.
There’s no conceivable way that any human being can adequately
represent 680,000 constituents–it’s a charade.”
