    Here is a moral question for you. This is an imaginary situation, but it may be interesting deciding what you would do.
    The situation: You are in the Midwest, and there is a huge flood in progress. Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised, and infrastructure destroyed. Let's say you're a photographer out getting still photos for a news service, traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes. If you were to stumble across Mitt Romney struggling to keep from being swept away in a raging river and you had a choice of rescuing him or getting a Pulitzer prize-winning photograph of the death of a Presidenial candidate, what shutter speed would you use?

      @bobcat(in a hat) I'm glad that you had a great vacation. Excellent that Pookie was such a good traveler. I've been in my new location for about 7 days after accepting a fantastic job offer. Fortunately I took out a renters insurance on this place and the important stuff was in boxes. So everything that matters to me is with me now. Wow, you lived in a cave? That had to be an amazing experience. Now try not to laugh too hard but I am staying with a relative who is a priest until this monster blows out of here. So it's me, a couple of priests, all of our pets, their dogs are afraid of my cats. At least I have my own room but the winds and rain are unbelievable even here 80 miles inland.

      @ banasy
      I just couldn't resist that one.

      @ dazzle
      I'm doing my best to stifle my laughter over your situation, but dang it's hard. But I know too that you have been (ahem) blessed.

    @chrissy, yes I did. I've always been a bit of a Bohemian. @bobcat(in a hat), no worries I'm laughing as I type. Considering that he wants to save this wayward Catholic. Oh man, family, mine is now very close to me.

    Plenty of people care; however, if your slant is that there is indeed a coverup, Fox News has that for you.
    Why post here if you dislike CNN?
