Less than 10 per cent of the wreck has been removed from the reef. There are still a lot of containers and debris submerged around the wreck site, still lots of toxins, and the like, and the MV Rena is still a big headache.
And now that MV Rena is gone from sight and mind, the perception of crisis is finally over. Then the problems would never be over, the region would have been devastated environmentally, ecologically and economically for generations to come.
The hapless ship Creative Tauranga seems to go from crisis to drama — and this week was cast adrift from The Cargo Shed management. The only creativity seems to come from their ability to talk money out of councillors.
Meanwhile, the tenants of The Cargo Shed have succeeded in a well-overdue mutiny, getting rid of the loot-plundering lot, and are plotting their own course. We wish them a safe and prosperous voyage without the shackles and blood-sucking of their former management.
The Government is planning to dish out free tucker to kids who turn up to school without breakfast. If they are already parents that care so little for their children, that their kids turn up to school hungry, this will just become another cop out for them.
So they now have no incentive to get out of bed and sort their kids out before school. And what are these children going to learn?
That they too can grow up to breed with no responsibility for their offspring. The social welfare benefit is calculated to allow these families to live healthily and comfortably. There are many families reliant on the benefit, who manage it.

Is Lana going to be joined by Lisa Lewis, to read the recipes topless? Or will it be filmed from the lion enclosure at the zoo?
Such as Di Swann, the food editor during all these years. And Hannah Cullinane, the nutritionist who, it appears, cuts her own hair. Searching the universe for a suitable replacement for Allyson. Those were dark days. The world waited on the edge of its seat. Birds stopped singing in the trees.
Even the search for a potential new US president went onto the back burner. We forgot about Kosovo declaring independence from Serbia; Fidel Castro retiring as president of Cuba; and Bill Gates stepping down as chairman of Microsoft. Or heaven forbid, king. The sun came out, flowers blossomed and the world breathed a collective sigh of relief.
