    This is a moral question for you. It is an imaginary situation . . .
    . . . but it is fun to decide what you would do.

    The situation: You are in the Midwest, and there is a huge flood in progress.
    Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised, and infrastructure
    destroyed. You are a photographer out getting still photos for a news service,
    traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes.

    Suddenly, you stumble across a Marine helicopter crash. It's George Bush
    and he's struggling to keep from being swept away in a raging river and you have
    the choice of rescuing him or getting a Pulitzer prize-winning photograph of the
    death of a President.

    What shutter speed would you use? :picture:

    Rock the Vote not the Joke.....

    I am an ex U.S. Army Helicopter crewchief. I have had friends crash and die while serving in the first Gulf War and I was involved in a flood in the desert that ruined our clothes and food and other equipment. This joke has been told before. Wasn't funny then and isn't funny now. I'm certainly not a Bush supporter by no means but instead wishful thinking we need to do some decisive planning before we let the Republicans and Democrats represent us by mispresenting us again. If we let what happen last election happen again next election the joke will be on us like it always is....


    Peace...........
