Is it ever wrong to do the right thing?
That's the question for the 2009 Great American Think-off. This is the 17th year of the contest in which people submit an essay of up to 750 words. Four finalists will then debate the question.
The only words I can come up with are "it depends." Right for whom? Right for you? Right for the greater good?
If you'd like to try your essay out (or try out a few theories on us), help yourself to the comments section. It's the right thing to do.
