I used to be one of those people who argued with the talking heads on television. I was a political junkie from my earliest days, so there I would be on a Saturday morning, thanking Bill Buckley on the other side of the screen for correcting his "Firing Line" guest's wayward thinking or telling Eleanor Clift on "The McLaughlin Group" that there is another way to think about things (as if she didn't know that on her own, or, well, could hear me).
Last month an initiative petition was filed seeking to take redistricting away from the Oklahoma Legislature and put it in the hands of a committee it would select. If enough signatures are collected, the question would eventually be put on a statewide ballot for voters to consider.
