I'll guess making something right; like the act of rectifying something.  

See, I don't always have to go south.  It's Sandy that does that.

There were 3 definitions for this word... I couldn't decide which one to post so I am posting all 3.. and even an example of it being used in a sentence...

1 : the quality or state of being straight

2 : moral integrity : righteousness

3 : the quality or state of being correct in judgment or procedure

The speaker exhorted audience members to lead lives of unimpeachable rectitude and integrity.
