“But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”

You'll have to look up those verses to see the complete verse.
Main thing to remember is we represent Jesus to other people (saved and unsaved). If we're angry and voice grudges or eternal hate against someone; we got a problem. Take it to the Cross of Calvary and be cleansed.
If other people hate on you, you're blessed if they are getting mad at the Jesus that is shining on your face. Rejoice and be glad.
With the Word on the inside of you shining onto the outside world; People will feel that love of the Father, that Jesus came to show us.
Almost everyone I know, wants to walk in the love of Jesus. I think people are saddened that our world is becoming so angry at this or that issue.
I think it's a sin issue.
So you splash some Jesus on those you meet and they will want to know how to get some of that.

is it good to be angry for any reason

We must remember the Hebrew word for Raca is Chacha, which means worthless. So Jesus is telling us that if we get angry, and call our brother or sister this term, then we are in danger of the judgment. If we call our brother a fool, then we are in danger of Hell fire. The Greek word for Hell is Gehenna which was a valley in Hinnom where the Jews word burn their garbage. This is a sign of the fires of Hell in the final judgment. So guard your heart, and be angry, but sin not.

Christians interpret this verse differently. Some people believe its not ok to be mad at anyone ever and that if you are then you should feel guilty and repent for feeling this natural human emotion. I don't think that's what the Bible means.
Another camp may believe that anger is ok. Even Jesus was angry: http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Matthew-21-12/
There's probably a difference between being angry at the sin of someone (ok and healthy) and expressing an angry emotion so intense its almost a hatred (or curse) toward a person.
I think Jesus was assertive, frank and direct with people- called the Pharisees sinners and said things to people that caused conflict- enough that they killed him, but they needed to hear.
So, I think this verse doesn't mean you're sinning and going to hell if you find yourself mad at someone for wrecking your car, for instance.

"Be ye angry and sin not"(Eph.5:3). "And" is a conjunction which unites anger and sin. Be ye angry BUT sin not, would give a different message. Today, we might say; Do not be angry and sin. Food for thought.

I've heard a story that the King James who appointed a team to translate the Bible, was angry with his own brother, therefore this exception was entered to favor him. I don't know since I wasn't there and havn't studied much history. It seems anyone needing a purpose to be angry could invent one. After the cross, when the new testament came into effect, we have "Let all ..anger..be put away from you" (Eph.4:31).
