Slate has a lengthy slideshow of the most gerrymandered districts.  But are they all really that bad?  For instance, one in NY hugs the shore of Lake Ontario.  Don't the shore towns share more with each other than with the Finger Lake towns?  Is that such a bad thing?

As usual, read the comments.  Slate's commenters span from the shallow political comments into some fairly thoughtful analysis.

Slate mentioned the PA-6th, but the PA-7th in the adjacent and not so adjacent Philly suburbs is changing to become perhaps the weirdest shape of them all. There's a map in this article: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/our-money/135708878.html
