Redistricting Time Again

RECEIVED Wed., Dec. 5, 2012

Dear Editor,
    There is a current push by the Texas GOP to redraw the court-ordered state redistricting map after the party lost several House seats in the recent election.
    Redistricting according to Texas law is supposed to take place once every 10 years. Conservatives in Texas continue to look like spoiled fools as they try again and again to gain more positions by their ongoing arrogant and malicious attempts to redistrict when it suits them.
    "The times they are a-changing," wrote Bob Dylan.
    Texas is slowly changing from "red" to a “pinkish hue” before it turns more “blue,” and there isn't much the GOP can do to change that reality. Redistricting is one of the last attempts of a frustrated party growing stale and losing its megagrip.
