The "strip district" -- a conspiracy theory
Wed April 20, 2011 10:08 am

This is district 88, an open seat, ten counties across and one couty wide, with U.S. 380 in the middle. Here’s the conspiracy theory: It’s designed to bring wind power from West Texas to the Metroplex. The new representative will not object to the construction of the lines. The beneficiary: T. Boone Pickens. It’s a plausible explanation for why the district looks the way it does.
