James Weinstein, founding editor and publisher of In These Times and a Chicago resident for roughly three decades, died last week. Not long before his death, the "Groucho Marxist" was honored by the locally-based Community Media Workshop at their annual Studs Terkel Awards. Obituaries ran in the Tribune, the LA Times, the Guardian, and, of course, the journal that still bears his imprint.
