Common Ground

Blogs thrive on drawing lines in the sand and daring the guy on the other side to cross it. Bloggers don't often find a DMZ, much less common ground.
Retiring delegates Chris Saxman (R-Staunton) and Kris Amundson (D-Fairfax) found a bit of common ground as they reflect on their years in the General Assembly. The last paragraph in their joint Washington Post column reads:
"Oh, there is one last thing. We learned that if you really want to get things done in Richmond, you should listen more than you speak, work for others and not for yourself, and be as nice as you can to everyone you meet. Basically, follow the Golden Rule. It works."
There's more good advice for future delegates in What We Learned in Richmond.
