Didn't have time to write much for today's entry, so I thought I'd catch up on some loose ends.
If redistricting is something you find interesting, you want to take a look at this game called "The Redistricting Game."
It's a simulation where you are the map drawing guru hired to put in new Congressional Districts. There are five missions you can undertake, and I think it gives you an idea of how much power those that draw the maps truly have.
It's highly addictive, so play when you have some time to kill. Enjoy!
