Our View: Fairer districts would be refreshing

Nothing illustrates politicians' contempt for average Ohioans more clearly than the shape of the state's 16 congressional districts. Ohio's congressional map is among the most blatantly gerrymandered in the nation, drawn to ensure that not one of the districts is politically competitive.
