Voters and legislatures "draw maps" NOT judges!

For the moment, it looks like common sense will prevail in the efforts to redraw Texas' maps:

"The U.S. Supreme Court has again thrown Texas’s new congressional map into a state of flux, temporarily blocking a court-drawn redistricting map late Friday and announcing that it would rule on the constitutionality of the map early next year.

The ruling is a win for Republicans who had sought to hold up the map of the state’s 36 congressional districts. 

The map was drawn by a three-judge panel after a map drawn by Texas Republicans got caught up in the courts."  (WP)

Hooray for the US Supreme Court.  I'm glad that someone understands that voters and state legislatures should draw maps rather than judges.

As a Hispanic, I am sick and tired of people who insist that I must be represented by a Hispanic.  

Frankly, that's an insult.  I vote for people because of their ideas, character and experience.  I am not into quotas!

Let's hope that the people of Texas win this and draw their own maps.  We already have too many "unelected" judges making too many decisions.
