Now that the New York Times pay wall is live, you only get 20 free clicks a month. For those worried about hitting their limit, we're taking a look through the paper each morning to find the stories that can make your clicks count.
The tornadoes in the South lead the coverage on the home page again today, with news of the soaring death toll and burgeoning recovery, along with some incredible photos. But never fear, royals-watchers. There's a whole subsection of Style devoted to this morning's nuptials across the pond.
World: The main story here is Egypt's shifting allegiences as it normalizes relations with Hamas and Iran. The must-read (if you haven't already) is CBS reporter Lara Logan's first public account of her brutal sexual assault while covering the revolution in Egypt.
U.S.: Tornado coverage dominates, including an unusual account of the television meteorologists covering the storm. Also, we get a look at the haphazard science behind predicting tornadoes. Further down, it's worth reading the account of Phillip and Nancy Garrido's guilty plea in the 1991 kidnapping of Jaycee Duggard. However, in-depth coverage of that might be better from the San Francisco Chronicle, which is the local paper.
New York: Subway elevator operators still work in some stations. Who knew?
Business: Could Happy Meals be a thing of the past? Proposed new federal regulations would restrict food advertising to children. But that may not matter if the toys can't get to our shores from China, where a shaky trucking system threatens exports.
Technology: It's all about the video games today, with news that sales of Xbox and the like, rather than PCs, are fueling Microsoft. Also, it looks like the hackers who absconded with Playstation Network users' data have actually gotten credit card numbers and are looking to sell them.
Science: Forget the pomp and circumstance over the royal wedding. In Florida it's all about Space Shuttle madness as the region prepares for the final launch of the shuttle Endeavour.
Sports: The NFL lockout didn't put a stop to the draft last night at Radio City Music Hall, but it did make it awkward.
Opinion: In the lead op-ed, law professor Dale Carpenter posits that the legal profession, in general, has come around to the point of view that "sexual orientation is irrelevant to a person's worth."
Arts: Meet the O'Farrell clan, the "first family of Afro-Cuban jazz."
Style: Obviously, the only thing to read here is the royal wedding coverage.
