If God Himself could speak out and create a redistricting plan for Maryland, it's certain that at least one member of the present delegation would be crying to high heaven. Census constraints require the creation of a new, minority congressional district in the Washington suburbs. That leaves the eight incumbent House members playing musical chairs. When the noise of partisan fighting stops, there will be seats for only seven.So it should come as no surprise that in the month since Redistricting Plan No. 1 was endorsed by the Governor's Redistricting Advisory Committee -- a plan which brazenly edged out Republican Helen Bentley -- that Bentley has fought back hard.
