Subject: [Leica] A Moral decision...
Date: Tue, 16 Oct 2001 09:06:11 -0400

I have a moral question for the group. This is an imaginary situation, but I
think that it may be a useful exercise.

The situation: You are in the Middle East, and there is a huge flood in
progress. Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised and
structures destroyed.

Let's say that you're a photographer getting photos for a news
service.  One day while traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant 
you come across Osama Bin Laden who has been swept away by the floodwaters.
He is barely hanging on to a tree limb and is about to go under.
You can either put down your camera and save him, or take a Pulitzer Prize
winning photograph of him as he loses his grip on the limb.

So here's the question and please think carefully before you answer the 

Which lens would you use?
