Three Modest Evidences for a Theory of Sublimation

I believe that the way of the world is that emotions can be outletted in a number of ways. What seems to be about one thing can be about something entirely different, transmogrified in format. Here are three supports for my theory:

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.
