Representation?

Do you think being 1/736,000th of a person is reasonable?  That's what we all are when it comes to Congress.  Each District, crudely, contains 736,000 people.  Do you think that is a reasonable proportion?  Do you think that is representation?  Back in 1787, the founders thought that each District should contain, at most, about 40,000 people.

A Congress that sets representation at one Rep per 60,000 people would then yield 5,333 members in the House.  I think our technology can cope with this large a body.  I think we would all be better served by a House this size.  

Hmm, I think we ought to triple the size of the Senate.
