Viewing Desktop version on my phone

The new front page just hit my iPhone, and ew. Sorry to those who worked on it. The old mobile front page was tolerable only because it was easy to get to the desk top version of the site: click the View Desk Top Version in the lower left and you're there. With the new mobile site I don't see a way to easily to that. I finally was able to access it by typing in the link.

In fairness to those who put the time and effort into the new mobile design I tried to navigate it for a while. It was not pleasant. The ads take up as much space as the articles. You have to click on each headline to read the article - no way to get a summary. Can't even tell what is an ad and what is an article.

I hope the old desktop version sticks around for a long time. It's the only version I find readable.
