Sorry. I am using a kludge to get HTML in the forum. No bueno. The NEW daily paper every day can be found here:

https://paper.li/Surly01/1490295659#/

This works for the latest version of the paper. You can search "archives" for past papers, but sifting old news is as appetizing as eating stale leftovers.

The "subscribe" button is at the top of the paper on the right. Since it's a button I can't paste a link.
