Fwd: Flood dilemma - a Tough question..

Ooooops,.. I forgot to include the original ...

Here i sone to ponder over...


I have a moral question for you.  This is an hypothetical situation, but I
think it is fun to decide what one would do.

infrastructures destroyed.

service, traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes.  You
come across Bill Clinton who has been swept away by the flood waters.  He
is barely hanging on to a tree limb and is about to go under.  You can
