Dr. CUMMINGS: The Macon messiah

The first Mayor of our new consolidated city/county will have to be a messiah. Really. What we need now is a man (there are no women in this six-man race) who can walk on water -- the water that divides us; who can raise the dead -- the dead prejudices that keep us yelling at each other in the City Council meetings; who can give sight to the blind -- the blind hatred that keeps us focused on the Trayvon Martins instead of on the issues that can move us forward.
