    My 'Hopenhagen citizenship' was easy to obtain, but what would it get me? Was I entitled to vote or apply for social benefits? Could I move there for the summer? It didn't take long before the penny dropped. This place was not so much a city-state as a state of mind.

    Kyle Sandilands and other shock jocks may want to behave well, but they are constrained by commercial logic, and need the helping hand of regulation. Even John Laws intimated this last week when he told VEGA 95.3: 'I never wanted to create mischief that would be damaging to people.'

    Today's commentators seem determined to speak about anything but the cricket — their lunches, last night's frivolities, films, politics and, most of all, themselves. Much more than the Australian players, Test cricket commentators are in crisis.
