Ethical test - do you have personal character?

This test has only one question but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer you will discover where you stand ethically. No one else will know, so you won't be fooling anyone but yourself if you give anything but a truthful answer.

 

The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Please read slowly and thoughtfully, giving due consideration to each line.

 

Here's the situation: You are in Louisiana; New Orleans, to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by hurricane Katrina with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you - some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.

 

Suddenly you see a man floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer -- somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's George w. Bush, President of the United States! At the same time, you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under....forever. You have two options -- you can save the life of G.W. Bush, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men.

 

So here's the question, and please give an honest answer:

 

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

I'd explain to him that, in the grips of such a national tragedy as Katrina, now is the time for more personal sacrifice from all Americans. Huricanes are hard work, and people die. We knew this before Katrina, we've always known this. Then as he pleadingly asked me why I wouldn't save him, I'd say that it is not productive to play the blame game.

Then, just as he gave up and slipped below the surface, I'd drag him from the water, and lay him out on the shore. And as he laid there, weak from the near-death experience, face flushed and breath heaving, I'd take a picture of him with my sack on his forehead, thus creating the most almighty "PWNED" picture in history.
