The Straight Dope®

Newspapers Carrying the Straight Dope

[ Home Page | News | Columns | Search | AOL | Books | Other Outlets | FAQs ]


If none of the papers on the list below is convenient to you and you'd like to be able to read the latest Straight Dope three days before it appears on America Online or the internet, your best bet is to find the name of the local "alternative" paper in your area and pester the editor. Alternative papers are generally free weekly free tabloids with arts and entertainment listings, hip local coverage, and the sense to recognize an outstanding syndicated column when they see one.

SUBSCRIPTION INFO FOR STRAIGHT DOPE PAPERS AS OF 12/11/96

To find a paper near you, your best bet is to use the 'find' function of your browser to search on a city. If no city near you carries the column, you can search for the postal abbreviation of a state. Hint: surround the state with spaces so you don't find it as a part of another word.
