The author writes:
Free as in beer or free as in speech? I think of Garfield more in terms of the former. Many people use the word "free" to make their political points. I wonder if they're selling something. Fat-free, free will, free beer, free-wheeling, free love, free software, nothing is as scary as when a politician uses it.
