Okay folks here is a moral dilema for you all........
You're in Zimbabwe... near Kariba, to be exact. There is great chaos
on around you, caused by an unpredicted storm and severe floods.
are huge masses of water all about you. You are a Daily News
and you are in the middle of this great disaster. The situation is
hopeless. You're trying to shoot very impressive photos. There are
and people floating around you, disappearing into the Zambezi River as
roars through the gorge. Nature is showing all its destructive power
and is
ripping everything away with it.

Suddenly you see a man in the water - he is fighting for his life,
not to be taken away by the masses of water and mud. You move closer.
Somehow the man looks familiar. Suddenly you know who it is's
Robert Mugabe! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are
to take him away, forever.

You have two options and no time to lose. You can save him or you can
the best photo of your life. You can't do both. So, you can save the
life of
Robert Mugabe....or you can shoot a prize winning photo, a unique photo
displaying the death of one of the world's most notorious leaders.

And here's the question (please give an honest answer):

Would you select colour film, or rather go with the simplicity of
black and white?

Here's another moral dilemma. Someone posts one of the oldest chestnuts in the book. Do you give a withering, sarcastic response or humour them?

We did have a laugh, the first time we saw it. But for most of us this is about the sixth time with the second or third personality in the water.

Never mind. Your one of "us" now Smile
Round about the third time, you'll probably start to feel it.

LOL although being a South African I really can't figure out one thing - why hasn't some trigger happy assassin or a just plain fed up citizen of Zimbabwe ended their misery before now? While I absolutely do not condone murder, killing, death of any kind by anyone at any time for any reason - somehow I do find myself pondering that question at times.

The problem is, if someone were to do that then his cronies on the gravy train would just take over and carry on as before - if not worse, epsecially when they started reprisals and recriminations.
Look at what, reportedly, happened after he didn't win the first vote - many of the Zimbabwean military and police were the "freedom fighters" prior to independence and are fiercely loyal to Mugabe and his cronies.

I know - I wasn't suggesting it as solution - I just wonder why no-one has done it that's all
