The latest issue of In These Times is a special, extra-length issue devoted entirely to the subject of socialism in America today. This special issue is available now. Order your copy today.

First, the bad news: Brian Beutler, the Media Consortium's Washington Correspondent (and hence regular ITT contributor), was shot three times last night in a mugging in Washington D.C. The good news is that he underwent successful surgery last night and is expected to make a full recovery. In typical wryly hilarious Beutler-fashion, his first words post-surgery to Addie Stan, his editor at TMC who he was supposed to file a piece for today, were: "Sorry, I left you high and dry." Aside from being an excellent reporter, Brian is also a true mensch, so the staff here hopes that his recovery is as quick and painless as possible. In the meantime, he and his family will be in our thoughts. Get better soon, Brian!
