The Fugitive

In "Hacker’s Extradition to U.S. More Likely," the New York Times explains that British citizen Gary McKinnon is losing his three-year fight to avoid trial in the United States for hacking into military computers. McKinnon has responded that he did little damage, that much of the most sensitive data wasn't even password protected, and that he was only looking for evidence of UFO landings and research on free clean energy sources. Rockers Chrissie Hynde and Bob Geldorf have been taking McKinnon's side and are promoting a musical anthem to prevent what they see as a miscarriage of justice. The tune, "Chicago - Change the World," will soon be released. Meanwhile you can check out McKinnon's own song on YouTube.
