Personally I would prefer electing them but eliminating the statewide popular vote crap. Elect them with an electoral type of system where they get a certain number of votes per district.

The worst effect of the 17th Amendment was removing the ability of the State legislature and/or the constituent Citizens, the People, to remove a Senator from office before the end of the six year term of office. This change and the virtual impossibiity for impeachment or censure of a Senator belonging to the majority party ahs made the senators virtually immune from accountability, especially if and when vote fraud rigs the elections.
