[SciPy-user] addressing 1d array

Hi everyone

I'm currently writing some code where I read in a data file - Generally 
there are > 1 entry and I check certain parameters for example

if data[0]['date'] == something:

Which is fine until I get a single element and the above gives:

'0-d arrays cannot be indexed'

which makes sense , however, is there any easy way of just using the 
above code without having to check each time to see if it is only a 
single element - i.e. transparent (similar to idl) and just assumes that 
data[0] is the only element if there is only one in there.
