Zine Review of "Heartcheck" by Jeffrey Luers and Rob Thaxton
17 May 2005
Modified: 04:57:28 PM
"Heartcheck" zine, by political prisoners Jeffrey "Free" Luers and Rob "los ricos" Thaxton (both currently serving time in Salem, Oregon), is

Since you are reading this on a computer, you are a slave to MS and you should care. Freeing us from MS and its robber baron could raise the country's productivity by several points. I'll show how it. To have fun, usable, efficient computers, it is necessary. To finally realize the dream that Bill Gates aborted, we need a computer that is: Cheap----Instant-On----Simple----General Purpose. Only India has one, for $200 ("good globalization").
