    If you are talking about Congressional redistricting, they really need to make some sense out of the 1st District. Anyone with a long memory knows why it was drawn the way it was: to get Owensboro and Bowling Green in the same district so Don Blandford could take Bill Natcher’s place when he finally retired or croaked. Boptrot and Ron Lewis got in the way of those grand plans. It’s utter lunacy to have the 1st District stretch all the way from the Mississippi River to Appalachia and a good chunk of the Old 5th. Put Owensboro in the 1st with Paducah (it probably has more in common socioeconomically and politically with the downriver counties than it does with Bowling Green, let the 2nd take more of the south-central and Knobs counties that it should have. I’d even be in favor of moving the west side of Louisville into the 2nd and the East End into the 3rd.

    On the state level, I just wonder if there are any legislators the leaders want to gerrymander out of a seat? It’s happened before; the Democrats have even gerrymandered one of their own out of a position and into a majority R district because they thought he was an utter fool. Paul Patton gave him some solace (and a better retirement) by finding a state merit job for him in his home county. Then the very next chance they got, they put his home county back into a solidly safe seat for the D candidate.
