    I believe the adherence to the number 435 has more to do with the size of the house chamber than anything else.  As representatives become more broad-based in recent years (read 'fat-assed'), there simply is no room to accommodate any more congress-critters.

    I am a very serious person with very serious opinions.

    Real plastic here; none of that new synthetic stuff made from chicken feathers. By the morning of 9/12/2001 the people of NYC had won the War on Terror.
