Boring Congressional Map


One of the more exciting things about off-presidential year elections is looking at the Congressional maps and trying to decide what shapes the gerrymandering has created (you know, like looking up at the clouds and trying to figure out the shapes). Unfortunately, I looked at Georgia’s map this morning (PDF) and nothing was coming to me. I mean, maybe the 13th looks like something but the map as a whole renders much less interesting shapes than it used to (PDF again – I’m seeing a dragon or Loch Ness in the 13th and a chicken leg in the 12th).

Anyway, it used to be a fun little time killer, but now it’s gotten boring (I almost wrote “goran boring.” Firefly is too much in my mind).

    We just Netflixed the entire Firefly series. LOVED it… I wish I’d have been watching TV when it was actually on.

    somehow, on the net, political discussions frequently seem to morph into sci-fi discussion. I just watched firefly/serenity for the first time myself and did find it enjoyable, even with the incongruous juxtoposition of literal sci-fi with literal western.
