Or if you have each district with insignificant rural population with a slice of city controlling the district.

The reason districts are drawn the way they are is to ensure different interest groups get adequate representation. Gerrymandering is a boogeyman yet used by sore losers to justify why they can't win anywhere.

And it's an insult to the fact legislatures and districting commissions have to spend many hours setting these up. There's many more factors then a square district, it's an inherently political process, someone's bound to be upset
Nonsense. "Safe" districts are bad for everyone living there. Those in the minority are written off, and those in the majority are taken for granted. Nobody has a voice anymore.
