David Hegg: What writing really does

By my count, this column is #211. Two hundred eleven times I have put my thoughts into writing and offered them up to the public conversation and critique. I must admit, when I first suggested a column on ethics to the leadership of the Signal I never dreamed it would come to this. This column has become part of my weekly routine. More than that it has become a bit of a master. It has me under its thumb, always reminding me another 750 words will be required, and should make at least some sense.
