Thoughtful question posed at DPReview.com

This test will only take one minute and 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, USA. There is chaos all around you caused by a cyclone, with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions.
You are a photo-journalist 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 into the water.Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.

THE TEST: Suddenly, you see a man 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 Bush! You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever. You have two options: 1. You can save his life; or
2. You can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country's most powerful men!

THE QUESTION: Here's the question, and please give an honest answer...

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

I had a link to the thread, but it is now deleted from the server, stupid moderators, it had a LOT to do with photography! ;0}
