Explosive rhetoric not conducive to finding solutions

One of the goals of the new consolidated government -- whenever the election is held and the government is installed -- should be to change the tone. While the Bibb County Commission is generally more cordial than Macon City Council, voters should put congeniality on the list of traits they want to see in their candidates of choice. Members of any government should choose their words carefully. Flying off the handle or using emotionally charged words does not move the discussion toward solution. It only massages overinflated egos.
