    Give An Honest Answer...
    This test only has one question, but it's a very
    important one. By giving an honest answer, you will
    discover where you stand morally.
    The test features an unlikely, completely fictional
    situation in which you will have to make a decision.
    Remember that your answer needs to be honest,
    yet spontaneous.
    Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration
    to each line.
    THE SITUATION
    You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is
    chaos all around you caused by a hurricane 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 disappear ing under
    the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.
    ===============================================
    THE TEST
    Suddenly you see a woman in the water. She is
    fighting for her life, trying not to be taken down
    with the debris. You move closer. . Somehow the
    woman looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is.
    It's Hillary Clinton!

    At the same time you notice that the raging waters
    are about to take her under forever. You have two
    options--you can save the life of Hillary Clinton,
    or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize
    winning photo, documenting the death of one of the
    world's most powerful women.

    THE TEST QUESTION
    Here's the test 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?

    High contrast color, you can always make it a crisp black and white later in Photoshop.

    I'd use color - I don't believe drowning her would kill her.

    The wicked witch melted when Dorthy threw water on her.

    But early Americans believed that witches didn't die when you tried to drown them.

    I guess we have a 50/50 chance.

    I would take time to savor the moment and take both pictures.

    Even if you had to walk back to the car to get the other film.

    I heard (read?) that water was the choice for the movie because there was an accident with an early attempt to burn the wicked witch. It was safer, for the actress, for her to be melted by water.

    Speaking as a Witch, I have to ask...

    Why are y'all trying to lump her in with us? Don't we have to deal with enough dingbats around Halloween?
