As I pen my first article that expresses my personal opinion for the first time and not merely reporting on sporting events, I think about three very important bullet points on the subject of “Crisis”.  One, what is a crisis?  Two, am I currently in a crisis?  Three, why did I use a pen, I've made a right mess of this laptop screen.

In a previous life, I don't know what I got up to.  In this life however, I wrote for two national motorsports magazines, which means I am very suitably qualified to answer question one.  A sports journalist is forever in a crisis, usually involving engaging the reader with ever more unique wordplay to spice up an otherwise monotonous occasion.  Sometimes deadlines and lack of article space adds to your woes.  More often than not my largest crisis was an empty bank account.  If you play your cards like how I play cards... that's a permanent crisis.  But don't just limit owning a crisis with my situation only, you too can have your very own stuff to worry about.

So what is the best way to handle such things?  I personally think politicians have the right idea, as they use the “ostrich head hiding” technique.  How can you identify a politician on the television?  It's very easy, you can still see the sand behind their ears.  But anyway, I envy the way they brush away some of the biggest problems that anyone could possibly face.  You see them announce their entire constituency has just got washed off by a flood to another country and that the chief treasurer just ran away with the entire bank account and yet there is your political representative, proudly showing off his dentists finest hours of work with not a sweat broken.  That has to be more than just the Lynx effect.

At the moment, the state of Western Australia faces a very uncertain time.  The iron ore madness settles down, gas projects kick in and people are buying less of the novelty rude shape beer glasses to consume their beloved bush chook in.  Times are tough and, going by the politician example, they have firmly stuck their fingers in their ears, proclaimed everything is okay and we should carry on as per normal.  That is reassuring to know I suppose, I was really concerned that we may have unemployment, homelessness, financial strain, crime, drug use et al. running rampant in the nation.  Glad that isn't the case.

I wonder how many parallels there are to world issues and studying for a course.  Since I pay attention to neither due to the complexities of said issues and, more often than not, sheer ignorance, I can't answer that.  Solving a crisis can be too difficult, so the best answer I can come up with for that is total ignorance beforehand, damage control afterward.  Once again the solution courtesy of our suited leaders for that worldly bit of wonderment.  And hey, you can't blame me for offering that piece of wisdom.  I'm only qualified to tell you the Falcon won the race against the rear engined dragster...
