No Small Achievement

Bernie Sanders

Jim Wein­stein was one of the intel­lec­tu­al lead­ers of the Amer­i­can pro­gres­sive move­ment. At a time when more and more of our media is con­trolled by huge cor­po­rate con­glom­er­ates, it is no small achieve­ment that he suc­cess­ful­ly pub­lished a well-respect­ed inde­pen­dent mag­a­zine, In These Times, for decades. Jim will be sore­ly missed by those of us who are fight­ing for a world of peace and justice.

Bernie Sanders (I‑Vt.) was elect­ed to the U.S. Sen­ate in 2006 after serv­ing 16 years in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives. He is the longest serv­ing inde­pen­dent mem­ber of Con­gress in Amer­i­can his­to­ry. Elect­ed May­or of Burling­ton, Vt., by 10 votes in 1981, he served four terms. Before his 1990 elec­tion as Ver­mon­t’s at-large mem­ber in Con­gress, Sanders lec­tured at the John F. Kennedy School of Gov­ern­ment at Har­vard and at Hamil­ton Col­lege in upstate New York.
