Straighten up

Re "Nuñez proposes panel to redraw districts," Aug. 31

I have a solution to the partisan redistricting problems. The following amendment to the state Constitution would end the hypocritical wrangling that goes on every 10 years to draw impossibly shaped districts whose only purpose is to ensure that the party in power remains in power.

The amendment would read: Each district shall have boundaries consisting of four straight lines joined by four 90-degree angles. Shorelines and state-line borders shall be considered straight lines, and the angles of lines intersecting with state lines and coastlines shall be considered right angles.
