I was just standing around the chip bowl with my brother. We've got 20 minutes until the big dinner.

I took a big bite out of a Tostito and looked down at the portion of chip I had left in my hand. It was a long, skinny, twisty shape.

ME: "Hey, look! It's the gerrymandered 12th District of North Carolina!"

Brother: blank stare

Brother: shake of head

ME: "Fine, I'm gonna go tell someone who cares."

Which is why I'm here, telling you.
