This is a small piece for The New York Times letters page. It accompanied a letter titled Invitation to a Dialogue: Rebuild the House, which you can read here. It puts forward the idea of reducing the average size of Congressional districts from 710,000 to 100,000. This would increase membership of the House of Representatives from 435 to about 3100, the benefit of this being that “these men and women would owe their seats more to the reputation they enjoyed within their community and less to the half-truths and misinformation put out by slick mass media campaigns paid for by the big-money interests.”
This is another NYT piece I did last year for a letter titled Sunday Dialogue: Schools for Rich and Poor. You can read that one here.
