We the Purple and Redistricting

Marcia Ford’s “We the Purple” blog, spreading the independent voter word, says:

Independents find this abuse of political power to be especially heinous. However, most Americans consider redistricting—drawing the lines of congressional districts—to be synonymous with “drowsy somnolence.”
Enter Manifold System’s Dimitri Rotow, who created several Google Earth files showing some of the worst districts in the country. His work is an eye-opener, and pretty cool to boot.
You can also play The Redistricting Game, which was developed by some brains at USC to help the Mensa-challenged understand how legislative districts are created.
Then there’s Gerryminder, an online simulation developed to teach college students about congressional elections, representation, and gerrymandering.
