In keeping things accessible around here (The W3C accessibility checklist,
the U.S. Federal Government Section 508

The Access Key Definitions for The Boston Diaries
|Access Key ||What the Access Key accesses|
|1 ||The link to the main page|
|4 ||The search box in the sidebar|
|9 ||Feedback to me|

to the search box and the email notification box in the sidebar
(although at least one browser will put the two advertising boxes in the tab

so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
