  • The government's definition of writing is seriously out of date

Sorry, but I think you are missing the point. The statutory definition of "writing" is an adumbration of Samuel Johnson's first definition, a legal instrument. The point is that a "writing" can have force and effect not only if it is an original holograph, but a mechanical or other reproduction. End of story.
