Mount Desert Island, Maine is host to an Onion-like satirical monthly that the Bangor Daily News insists on calling an alternative newspaper. The one-year-old Summer Squash "makes a few people nervous but it's great entertainment," says the MDI police chief. And according to the paper's editor, "We don't get many complaints, surprisingly, despite our [far left] politics. We get a lot of positive feedback. There are no rules, no regulation. We print everything we get."
