Back issues

I was on a plane, and i put about six back issues of the Isthmus in the seat back pocket, intending to read them. I said to myself "Don't forget the damned newspapers when you leave!"
Then I forgot all of the damned newspapers.

So...does anyone know if there is either a digital archive of Isthmus back issues, or a way to get them in print? I've scoured the website with no success.

Failing that...I'm specifically hunting for an article in (I think) the Nov.22 issue (the one with the cover story of thanksgiving stories) that dealt with gender identity and sexuality among children with Asperger's Syndrome. I could google it, but I don't remember what it was called or who wrote it, and my analog copy is in a United Airlines seat back pocket thousands of mile from here.

Anyone remember it? Many thanks in advance.

We looked through that issue and isthmus.com for an article as you describe but came up with little. Could it be this Savage Love column: http://isthmus.com/opinion/savage-love/neurodiverse/ ?

Fastest response I've ever seen from the admin.

See, Shorty, contrary to what you may believe, we do have other things to occupy our time outside foronland...foronicland...foronia...whatever...
But one thing we do do (heh) is to check on new foron wannabees to make sure they at least appear to not be spammers before allowing posts by them. Since this one seemed legit, it only made sense to search for what they were inquiring about and respond right away.
The post does, after all, ask about content in our paper (Isthmus? The folk that host this strange place you post in?) so why wouldn't we try to assist?
Someday we hope to ban people within minutes of getting a complaint about them or delete entire paragraphs of content that someone took offense to within the hour. Until we bring on that intern, though, we shall try to be as efficient as possible and will try to ignore apparent supercilious statements from you.

I'm not supercilious. Just a little cilious.

I've asked posts about Isthmus here and gotten no reply from admin. But I understand potential spammers and back issues need prompt attention.

Then we apologize for the slight and shall attempt to be better in the future. We are guessing it was Merv's day to answer questions, the slacker.
