"Writing is an act of hope. It means carving order out of chaos, of challenging one’s own beliefs and assumptions, of facing the world with eyes and heart wide open. Through writing we declare a personal identity amid faceless anonymity. We find purpose and beauty and meaning even when the rational mind argues that none of these exist.  
Writing therefore, is also an act of courage. How much easier is it to lead an unexamined life than to confront yourself on the page?"
— Jack Heffron (from “The Writer’s Idea Book”)

We needed an aviation skipper to be fired to balance the books. Got our lawyer, a carrier CO, and a destroyer CO. Look for a submarine skipper next.
