TPM: Well Known Liberal Blogger Shot In Washington, D.C.
Brian Beutler, a well-known progressive blogger, was shot and seriously injured during a mugging last night in Washington, D.C. One bullet damaged Beutler’s spleen, and he had it removed during surgery this morning at the Washington Hospital Center. He’s expected to make a “pre-trauma” recovery, which is to say, a completely full recovery.
While I wouldn’t consider Beutler and I to be on the same ideological plane, it’s still crazy to think that even in your own community, people as harmless as bloggers are even susceptible to the shootings that have plagued the city.
I wish Brian and his family the best during this ordeal.
