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.
Leading the front page, home page, and World today is a giant package on the detainees at Guantanamo Bay. The Times has gotten ahold of a huge stack of documents outlining the evidence against the prisoners there, and is going big with it, describing the once makeshift military prison as an "enduring American institution." There's a lot of good stuff in today's paper, but we're partial to an Arts section item about the Smithsonian's dilemma over a very complicated shipwreck.
World: Again, the detainees package leads here, including background on the documents, and a statement by the government. National Public Radio and the UK Guardian both also obtained and reported on the documents. In addition to the big Guantanamo package, there's a lot of reporting on Syria, including this detailed look at that nation's leader.
U.S.: Texas leads this section, with a report on evacuees from the wildfires there connecting with help via the Internet. There's also a look at some new school standards, called Common Core, meant to help students think analytically, and a report on the St. Louis Airport, which is back open after it was hit by a tornado.
Business: The top story here is an interesting look at the pervasive problem of a lack of standardization in women's clothing sizes. There's also a look at the controversial practice of drug companies using physicians' prescription records to market to them directly.
Technology: This section leads with a report on Google's quest to monetize its mobile search capability. More interesting, though, especially in the context of gleaning new information from the Web, is the report on Storify and its ilk, sites that help journalists sift through stories available on social media.
Science: A story that ran on Sunday, about what astronauts will do now that the Space Shuttle program is ending, is worth reading if you haven't already.
Sports: The game story on the Knicks vs. Celtics is worth a look as the NBA playoffs get underway. Also, you're probably getting your baseball scores elsewhere, but there's a neat feature on the White Sox' Paul Konerko, dubbed the "thinking man's slugger."
Opinion: Rose George explains why criminal behavior on the high seas isn't necessarily confined to pirates. History nerds, however, shouldn't miss Ronald Coddington's profile of the notable Civil War-era regiment from New York, the Seventh, and one of its privates, Alfred Barnes.
Arts: Opera fans shouldn't miss the review of the Metropolitan Opera's new production of Wagner's Walküre. Also worth clicking: A look at the ethical conundrum facing the Smithsonian over whether it should display a collection of Chinese artifacts recovered from an Arab ship off the coast of Indonesia and now owned by Singapore.
