It's been a while since my high school gov't class (in a public school
no less; read: government indoctrination center).  However, I seem to
recall that founders' intent was that the Senate represented the
interests of the government and the House represented the interestes of
the people.

The system we have now may as well be one house of congress.
Personally, I'd like to see a return to state legislatures electing
US senators.
