1. I've noticed that during the first weekend with a really full football schedule, the talk of going to war has subsided slightly.
2. I've noticed that specials which address Pearl Harbor are easier to assimilate as 9/11 approaches than actual 9/11 specials.
3. I've noticed that coverage of American Idol voting has subsided, and now people have noticed that they will have to elect politicians soon.
It's all about outlets. Outlets.
