Emotional Experiences

Issue 2

Host brought to the table powerful, emotional experiences at the Holocaust Museum and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall - survey to find similar experiences at the table
The table said - incredibly interesting answers including:
  • attending a Soviet Jewry rally in Washington as a teenager - meeting up with a black person on the bus and discovering how people can care about causes not their own
  • visiting Treblinka death camp and seeing a family picnicing on the premises
  • running in a marathon in DC right after 9/11 and running by the Pentagon
  • hearing Vietnam war stories of torture from Vietnam vets at the VA
  • watching the events of 9/11 on TV at a plant with the workers, and then seeing management post guards at the plant doors
  • going to the Wailing Wall and Masada
  • planning the funeral of a friend - with the friend

Issue Score - 10 - even more heartfelt and intimate than expected

It is with great trepidation that I must challenge the issue score. Just like in gymnastics and diving, for example, where a competitor can only achieve a certain score based on the difficulty rating, non-sex issues surely can't score above a 7.2 TNIR (Thursday Night Issue Rating).
