Today's Star Tribune editorial is one of the rare ones that I mostly agree with. Over the years, I've come to believe gerrymandering is the worst feature of our political system, simply because it stifles competition. If a redistricting method based solely on geography and population numbers reduces the number of safe seats for both parties, good. If competition is good for the economy, it should be good for our politics too.
