Quandary Resolution 6692
gerrymander, domable, protean, craquelure

Teri ran her finger across the spider's web of craquelure which covered the large and rather ancient map of the surrounding counties, tracing a new boundary: with a swipe here she annexed a goodly portion of contentious farmland; by judiciously ceding some territory there she rid herself of those she knew to be of questionable allegiance; with a grand gesture extending towards the edge of the painting she implied that her undoubted superiority in that region spoke for itself—for her these shapes on the map were protean but ultimately domable; the skilled gerrymanderer could carve up exactly what she needed to stay on top.
