Not sure which one it might have been. I remember getting in a bit of a fracas with some in the group around the lead up to the Iraq invasion. I forget whether there was such around 9/11 or the anti-terrorism Patriot Act stuff. I remember fondly arguing with Eliezer about CEV or some such at a gathering at your place once. Other than that I am drawing a blank. But if you can hum a few more bars perhaps something will get jogged loose.
