re: Alabama gerrymandering - The Spleen
It's not about which side I want controlling seats. It's about having better representation for the entire state. I think every state shoudl adopt California's system of drawing their CD's. They do a really good job of getting a good mix of R's and D's. ...

re: Alabama gerrymandering - The Spleen
[quote]So what you would really like is for districts to be setup so that just enough democratic voters are spread around that they tip the scales in more districts right?[/quote] No, just drawn so the results are more representative of the state's population. R's hold 6 out of 7 CD's, which is...

re: Home Run Inn Classic Pepperoni frozen pizza - The Spleen
It's pretty good, but it has a really different style crust. Real buttery and flaky, almost like a compressed croissant. Freshetta Brick Oven is still my favorite frozen pizza. The Digiorno Pizzeria ones are pretty good too. ...

re: Survior Season 35 Thread Heros vs Healers vs Hustlers - The Spleen
Ben and Chrissy both have been getting a winner's edit the past few weeks. It's really down to those two on who wins, and Chrissy right now has more allies. Though I could see Devin sneaking one out because he played a pretty good social game, other than backstabbing Ashley. ...
