And shout out to @GailSimone's Batgirl No. 1. This was a good run!
Guess this is going to turn into me live tweeting my comic collection. Here's this feat from @geoffjohns: the first Arab American superhero, and he's from Dearborn and he's a Lantern, no less.

.@RedistrictingMI is back and one of the first commenters noted that the sheer number of maps put forward was untenable and that, in his opinion, each one is worse than the last. Said partisan fairness is a near-zero efficiency gap and is the best metric to use.
The same commenter added, "without a low efficiency gap, we don't have a democracy." The commenter following this one said that while these maps weren't intentional GOP gerrymanders, they only do slightly better on partisan fairness compared to the 2011 reapportionment.
Yet another commenter said that through bad VRA advice, the commission has created Detroit districts that Black residents who voted for Prop 2 could have never imagined, and that was not a compliment. He pointed to the AFL-CIO maps as those that should rise to the top.

We're minutes away from the start of @RedistrictingMI's first public hearing on its draft proposed maps in Detroit. Expect a glut of comments on the state of the city's districts, which have been a source of scrutiny since mapping began and more so after mapping wrapped.
As a refresher, there are 10 collaborative map plans up for public comment, about as many individual commissioner-created maps and several more community submitted map plans:
Commissioner-drawn maps include three from Chair Rebecca Szetela (House, Senate, U.S. House), Rhonda Lange's Senate/U.S. House plans, Anthony Eid's Senate/U.S. House plans, Doug Clark's state House/U.S. House plans, and a single state House plan from Cynthia Orton.
