that federal courts would enter a "political thicket" if they made
districting justiciable, I offer the following story from today's Austin
Just to be clear, I still support Baker-I sometimes wonder about
Reynolds-and I am glad that the three-judge court seems to be appalled
by the newest attempt to engage in the political rape (or emasculation)
of Lloyd Doggett, who used to be my representative before Tom DeLay took
over Texas politics. But I defy anyone to draw the sharp line between
"law" and "politics" with regard to what the Court is supposed to do in
carrying out the Supreme Court's decree in the recent Perry case.
