SCOTUS ruling on independent redistricting commissions

This is amazing. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that states can take the power of redistricting away from the people likely to rig that system in their own favor. What that means is, I hope, gerrymandering may soon* be a thing of the past.

Gerrymandering: one of the biggest, dirtiest, dishonest cheats in American politics. I never understood, even my school days, how such a thing could be allowed to continue. May it die quickly.

*”Soon” is relative.
