There’s a worse way to think about redistricting?

The Houston Chronicle has an editorial calling on Texas to look at how we do redistricting (“There’s a better way to think about redistricting“). They point to State Senator Jeff Wentworth’s  (R-San Antonio) proposal to create a redistricting commission composed of eight commissioners from outside party ranks (4 picked by Republicans, 4 picked by Democrats, and the presiding office picked by the other commission members).

It’s not a perfect solution. But… could it get any worse than what we have? Is there anything worse than having the parties take turns hacking away at each other while the concerns of average Texans are neglected?
