Your cover story ["But Can He Hack Prison?" August 19] does a good job of documenting the sorry state of "radical" politics these days. I can just see all these left- and right-wing computer nerds trying to figure out how to shut down Web sites they don't like. Talk about hypocrisy. Jeremy Hammond trumpets himself as being the defender of the "free Internet." What he seems to mean is that the Internet should be "free" as long as he agrees with the content in question.
