I received the following message from a friend. The nature of the
question, which solicits an honest answer, persuades me that it is on
topic and therefore appropriate for this list.

Here's a dilemma for you.... With all your honor and
dignity what would you do? This test only has one
question, but it's a very important one. Please don't
answer it without giving it some serious thought. By
giving an honest answer you will be able to test where
you stand morally. The test features an unlikely,
completely fictional situation, where you will have to
make a decision one way or the other. Remember that
your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.
Please scroll down slowly and consider each line --
this is important for the test to work accurately.

You're in Florida...In Miami, to be exact. There is
great chaos going on around you, caused by a hurricane
and severe floods. There are huge masses of water all
over you. You are a CNN photographer and you are in
the middle of this great disaster The situation is
nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot very
impressive photos. There are houses and people
floating around you, disappearing into the water.
Nature is showing all its destructive power and is
ripping everything away with it.

Suddenly you see a man in the water, he is fighting
for his life, trying not to be taken away by the
masses of water and mud. You move closer. Somehow the
man looks familiar.
Suddenly you know who it is -- it's George W. Bush!

At the same time you notice that the raging waters are
about to take him away, forever. You have two options.
You can save him or you can take the best photo of
your life. So you can save the life of George W. Bush,
or you can shoot a Pulitzer prize winning photo, a
unique photo displaying the death of one of the
world's most powerful men.

And here's the question (please give an honest answer):

Would you select color film, or rather go with the
simplicity of classic black and white?
