Urgent Priorities

There are two things which are known with certainty about the past of Evo Morales: one is that played trumpet in a street gang, and the other, that playing football. Everything else is said of his person to exalt it, is pure story. Football is so important to the Bolivian President, that greatly disturbed, he summoned his Cabinet to an emergency meeting to discuss the decision of FIFA which forbids parties above an altitude of 2,500 meters, to be harmful to the health of the players. La Paz is 3,600 meters high and obviously their Stadium falls within the list of the prohibited by the Football Federation. At that height, the climate is not only harmful for the players but also for viewers. Do anything at almost 4,000 meters above the sea level is unhealthy and inhuman, but as the deep-rooted tradition of complicating everything in the worst possible way exists in Bolivia, La Paz was chosen as political and administrative centre of the nation, despite the fact that two-thirds of the country offers spectacular valleys and Plains to enjoy a full life.

The measure that prevents that the mediocre play with climate advantage, has stirred the regime socialista-indigenista – bolivariano, which hastily sent a Commission to Zurich to deal with this important matter. Not even occurred to them an appointment with the directors of the sports authority, they largaron to Europe in more native style campechano, characteristic of the new ruling class. According to Juan Ramon Quintana the Minister who leads the delegation: will go to hit the gates of FIFA at any time and under any circumstances so that they understand that Bolivia will not accept such a measure. The sports world trembles at the threat! What will the Bolivian footballers do? Strike of crossed legs to not show his enviable art and skill in the game, which has earned them so many international awards? They prohibit their cotizadisimos players export is? Do they close the doors of stadiums, to let the world see the fabulous shows They provide the vernacular teams? Finally the stupidity of rulers will be appreciated in its true dimension by those who do not warn the Bolivian reality with sharpness.
