At a recent conference on Bayes, fiducial and frequentist inference, David Cox presented eight illustrative examples, chosen to highlight potential difficulties for the theory of inference. We discuss these examples in light of the efforts of the conference, and related meetings, to study the similarities and differences between the approaches to inference. Emphasis is placed on the goal of finding a distribution for an unknown parameter.
